The Reading Room


The Reading Room in celebration of Book Week Scotland was a pop-up library and performance at Parkhead Cross. Open from 3-5pm, members of the public could browse the shelves, chose a book, and be read a story by the visiting actors. Over the course of the week we welcomed 5 actors and over 30 participants from the community.

It was wonderful to see families excited about reading and bundles of books going to new homes.

Here are some photos from the Thursday session with the wonderful Naomi Stirrat reading to some engrossed little (and not so little) listeners!


‘Hippo has a Hat’


Adults having more fun than the kids listening to ‘Dinosaurs love Underpants’!


The Peek-a-Boo Safari book was a hit!


A special thanks to Fiona Stewart, Joanne Macdonald, Naomi Stirrat, Luke Wilson and Ashleigh Smith.

Also thank you to McVities for providing wonderful book donations and boxes of ’emergency biscuits’- which were devoured by happy listeners.

And to everyone else who donated books to the project- thank you from Parkhead!
