Book Week Scotland is a national celebration of books and reading. This year’s theme is transformation and through these events Dumfries and Galloway Library Services will be celebrating the powerful and positive impact that books can have on people’s lives.
Councillor Tom McAughtrie said: “It’s great to have these unique events in Dumfries. Being part of the first event held in the newly renovated Theatre Royal and the first play in the Ewart Library are really exciting ways for people to celebrate Book Week Scotland.”
There are also school events planned throughout the region and special Bookbug Sessions.
