Our weekly Story Cafe sessions are so much fun! In this post our volunteer Lily explains what to expect from one of these events and shares why she feels these reading out loud sessions are so valuable and pleasurable.
This December I’m celebrating an anniversary – I’ve now been happily working in GWL for a full year, having joined the team as a development worker last December. Looking back on a packed year of ground breaking projects and personal learning it’s hard, if not impossible, to sum it up in a blog post. One of the great things about working in the women’s library (as well as the large variety of tea on offer) is being surrounded by such inspirational book shelves. It’s been difficult but I’ve chosen six books, that have punctuated this year in the library and would thoroughly recommend to others.
During our visit to Nairobi last month, we joined forces with the Book Bunk team for a Book Picnic like no other. Find out what books were recommended by the interns and staff from Book Bunk.
It’s Book Week Scotland!

One of our volunteers gives a brief review on a book she read recently.
Looking for something new to read? We’ve got you covered. Check out the new books we have in this month, and pop on by to borrow one. From poetry to graphic novels, I’m sure you will find something that takes your fancy.
These books are a must-read for Young Adult fiction lovers. Whether you like being transported to the streets of New York battling mythical creatures, or travelling to far away lands where magic is everywhere, or even just going to high school, befriending an outsider, there is something here for everyone.

To celebrate this week’s Book Bunk visit to GWL, our Story Café Special focused on Kenyan writers and activists. Read a summary of the Kenyan fiction, films and organisations we discussed.
