An ambitious programme of library events is about to sweep across Orkney and Shetland from this Thursday 11 September.
No sleep til Friday – it’s 24 islands in 24 hours.
To celebrate the island hopping events the Gunnie Moberg Archive offers up images of each of the participating islands – how many collections do you imagine could do such a thing?
Gunnie Moberg was drawn to islands and Orkney Library and Archive’s Twitter will be releasing a different image of a different island every hour.
Today we will travel the participating islands in Orkney, tomorrow let’s go to Shetland.
