Event description
As part of Book Week Scotland, we’ll be sharing and enjoying joyful poems and stories on the theme of ‘celebration’.

About this event

Library Socials is a free online programme of gatherings for people affected by dementia, plus their families, carers, and supporters. Join us each month for a relaxed, friendly session exploring music, stories, and poetry inspired by the Library’s collections.

Please note there are a limited number of places available, so booking is essential. Bookings are per household, so more than one individual can attend per ticket.

These gatherings are relaxed and conversational sessions, and we encourage guests to participate as fully as possible. If you are comfortable doing so, we would love attendees to be able to participate with cameras and mics on, when appropriate.

We look forward to welcoming you to our Library Social.

You will be emailed a link to join this event 48 hours and 1 hour before the session begins. The link and password to join the session can also be found at the bottom of your Eventbrite confirmation email. If you don't receive the Eventbrite emails, please check your spam folder or contact nlsevents@nls.uk for assistance.

With a collection numbering 26 million items, the National Library of Scotland is Scotland's largest library, and home to much of the nation's knowledge, history and culture.

Free events and exhibitions take place all year round in our flagship building on George IV Bridge in Edinburgh. In the Visitor Centre is our shop and a fully licensed café offering a selection of sandwiches, cakes and snacks. Facilities include wheelchair lifts, a unisex accessible toilets, and induction hearing loop (staff desks and performance space). There is lift access to the reading rooms for consulting our collections.

The opening of our premises at Kelvin Hall in Glasgow in September 2016 gives visitors a chance to enjoy talks and other free events previously only available in Edinburgh. Our interactive space provides a unique opportunity to explore the extensive digital resources held within our world-class collections, along with the Moving Image Archive, Scotland's national collection of moving image. The space is fully wheelchair accessible, and has assistive technologies and induction loop.
