World Book Night

On Thursday 23rd April 2015 Aberdeen City Libraries joined in with the national celebrations for World  Book Night.

We hosted a family storytime session with Linda Strachan, Library Bear hosted a sleepover and Quintin Jardine helped us celebrate World Book Night with a fantastic talk about his lastest novel!


Library Bear returned from his travels to welcome author Linda Strachan for a family storytime and to host a sleepover for adventurous teddy bears in Central Children's Library.

Linda presented prizes to the 8-11 and 12-16 category winners of the competition run in conjunction with the Scottish Children's Book Awards.Then it was time to coorie doon for stories featuring Linda's creation Hamish McHaggis. before leaving the teddies to have fun on their sleepover.
