Rediscover - a celebration of literacy at your library
On Saturday 8 September, for the very first time, every library in Dumfries and Galloway will be opening their doors and hosting a children's event.
Libraries are taking part in REDISCOVER a celebration of literacy which takes place over the weekend of Saturday 8 September and Sunday 9 September 2012. Coordinated by Dumfries and Galloway Council there is storytelling, film making, poetry slams, music and much more happening in venues across our region.
All events are free but ticketed. Contact your local branch to book your space.
