Everyone at the library is looking forward to the return of the Bookmarket to our friends and near-neighbours, The Fruitmarket Gallery.
This time the focus will be on Artists’ Books, with a special appearance from John Byrne at 8pm, and Lucy May Schofield will be in residence with her Bibliotherapy Artists’ Book Library.
Hope to see you there!

The Scottish Poetry Library and the Scottish Storytelling Centre are working on pilot projects in Edinburgh to bring oral culture and the power of memory and social connection to carehome residents and senior groups. We use stories, songs and poetry, with the help of trained volunteers and professional storytellers, across several different projects. We aim to develop this work as a single, well-resourced and sustainable model for delivery on a national scale, ideally in partnership with care or health organisations.
We are inviting applications to tender for research and recommendations on how we can best develop this work. It is crucial that the consultant has influential contacts with, and can think strategically across, social and healthcare policy as well as arts. This research is funded by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation and Creative Scotland.
Tender submission by Tues 12 April. Please see full brief below, and please contact Lilias Fraser to discuss any further queries, firstname.lastname@example.org, 0131 557 2876.
