Libraries across the county are puckering up for Love Your Library Day – a celebration of reading and using your local library.

A week-long programme of events and activities will run from Monday, February 3 to Saturday, February 8. All events are free and open to all.

The highlights include a guest appearance from crime writer Christopher Brookmyre and other authors including James Oswald, Sean Black, Gordon Lawrie, Kenneth R Bogle, Hazel McHaffie and Robin Mitchell.

A range of health and wellbeing sessions have been planned including line dancing, a judo masterclass, booky table tennis, xBox Olympics and sports massage.

Delve into local history with a visit to the Local Studies office in Loanhead and Danderhall Library. Learn about e-books or how to write the next great novel.
