What's On​​

A new photography exhibition illustrating the rich diversity of Scotland's population is set to go on tour in public libraries this September. The portrait exhibition will feature images of 20 people that were captured for the opening titles of the BBC Scotland channel's flagship news programme, The Nine.

Twenty photographs will appear in eight libraries from 2nd September 2019 to 23rd January 2020 as part of a travelling exhibition that will visit Ayr, Whitburn, Strathaven, Dunblane, Glasgow, Broxburn, Edinburgh and Elgin. The library exhibition has been developed as part of a partnership agreement between the Scottish Library and Information Council (SLIC) and BBC Scotland.

Public libraries are at the heart of our communities and are accessible to everyone, making them the perfect place to host this wonderful exhibition. It's further demonstration of the range of activities on offer in modern libraries.
