Happenings 10

June 19, 2009

It’s that Friday afternoon time at the SPL. The (plain) chocolate digestives are out and we’re just glad to be sitting here in the library. As yes, we couldn’t get into the building this morning until the locksmith arrived to rescue us – our front door lock broke.

The offending lock...

The offending lock...

Mostly, though, we’re excited to be heading down to the Ingleby Gallery quite soon tonight for the opening of their new Ian Hamilton Finlay exhibition. To get in the mood Julie (that’s me) is starting on the work of putting our extensive Finlay collections into archive presentation folders. This sort of work makes her very, very happy. It’s more interesting than budgets.

And we’re wondering who’s winning the Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust Book Awards – the SAC awards ceremony is happening as we speak down in Melrose (anyone down there who can send us some news?). Tom Pow is the poetry category winner in the running for the main prize.

Well, back to some last minute Friday afternoon work… happy weekends all

Julie
