Monifieth Library Corner

LAST month, Monifieth Library announced the launch of ‘Theory Test Pro’, a new online resource for local people.

And now they have created a new website, ‘Who Else Writes Like, which is designed to help readers select a new author to read.

This is done by suggesting authors who write in a similar, although not identical, style.

It is available to all customers of Angus libraries; you simply need your library card to access it through the council’s website.

If you’d like more information or a quick demonstration, just pop into Monifieth Library and ask any member of staff.

If you’re not too keen on browsing the internet, the library have a new Scottish Collection.

It includes popular fiction from chick lit author Carmen Reid and crime writer Doug Johnstone, as well as non-fiction titles including ‘Sporting Scots’ by John K.V. Eunson and ‘Short Walks Around Loch Lomond And The Trossachs’ by Collins.

The Scottish Book Trust will be running the first Book Week Scotland, a national celebration of books and reading, from November 26 to December 2, and local libraries are celebrating in style with no less than three author visits.

Bookbug creator Debi Gliori will attend Carnoustie Library on Thursday, November 29, at 11 a.m.

All of these events are free but ticketed.

Lastly if you’re gearing up for Christmas, pop into the Monifieth Library and see the publications that are on sale.

They include ‘Old Monifieth’ and ‘Old Arbroath by archivist Fiona Scharlau.
