NLS Roadshow 2012
East Renfrewshire Libraries, Giffnock
11 and 12 March 2012

NLS will stage our annual roadshow this month, working in partnership with East Renfrewshire Libraries in Giffnock.

On Sunday 11 March, a fair takes place at Eastwood Theatre, Giffnock, bringing together national and local library services and displays to celebrate local history. It includes talks by NLS maps and Scottish Screen Archive staff. No booking required.

On Monday 12 March, workshops take place for local schools, teachers and librarians.

The roadshows, run in partnership with libraries across Scotland since 2006, encourage communities to explore the National Library of Scotland's collections and services.
