Monifieth Library Corner

Book Week Scotland 2013 is fast approaching and library staff all over Angus are gearing up for a whirlwind week of events!

Forbes Inglis will be starting the week off by visiting Monifieth Library on Monday, November 25, to talk about his fascinating book ‘Murders and Misdeeds’, which tells the stories of men and women from Angus who were accused of capital crimes in the 18th and 19th centuries.

There are still plenty of free tickets for this event, which can be reserved at any Angus library. Programmes and posters will be appearing soon, keep a look out! Alternatively, if you’re looking for a Christmas gift for friends or family, pop into the library and have a look at the books for sale.

Monifieth Library has both informative and photographic books about the local Angus area which are all available at a reasonable rate. Library users are asked to note that the facility will be closed on Monday, December 2, for a public holiday. It will re-open at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, December 3. Staff will ensure that no books are stamped for return on December 2.

There are also two new collections in the library. Books on technology and the highlands and islands are available until February of next year.


Buddon shootout a sell out!

It has emerged that nearly all the tickets for the shooting competition at Barry Buddon next July have been sold. Organisers revealed earlier this week that approximately 92 per cent of public tickets for all of the Commonwealth Games events had been bought.

Following the first round of sales and another for those who missed out the first time the remaining tickets were made publicly available on Tuesday morning. The shooting will take place at Barry Buddon ranges from July 25 to 29.
