Book Week Scotland

To celebrate Book Week Scotland, team members from the Early Years Service and CAST have been out and about in Argyll & Bute hosting pirate themed Bookbug events for 730 children, aged 0 to 6 years, in Oban, Mid Argyll and Islay. The team performed action songs and rhymes in both English and Gaelic alongside the children who had been given CDs and booklets to practice in advance. They were joined in each location by local storyteller Alasdair Satchell who told the highly entertaining tale of Seumas and the pirate, Captain Gilly White.

The events ran smoothly in each local area with assistance from library staff, senior pupils from Oban High School, students from Argyll College, and staff members from Adult Learning and the Gaelic College on Islay.
