In my last post, I wrote about visiting Shetland Library while on holiday there. The following week, we moved on to Orkney and, of course, I visited the library. How could I keep away? This is a very famous library, winner of the 2015 Library of the Year Award, but long before that it was known world-wide for its humorous Twitter feed.
I was sad that the Wooden Woman (what’s she all about?) didn’t have any jokes to offer when we were there (those are hedgehogs made out of old books she’s holding) but, just so you don’t miss out, here’s an example of what she gets up to from Twitter.
If you don’t already follow @OrkneyLibrary I suggest you do so right now! Life will never be dull.
