This year our Book Week Scotland events program is all digital, and while we will miss seeing you in our libraries, there are lots of advantages to holding our author talks in this way:

  • You can view from the comfort of your own home at a time that’s convenient for you
  • You can pause, and even rewind the talk, if there’s something you missed
  • You can turn it up full volume, so you can hear everything clearly
  • You can watch it more than once!
  • You don’t need to brave the cold, dark Autumn nights (you can even watch it in your jammies!)

If you are new to viewing videos online, and are a bit uncertain about how to go about it, here are a few tips to help you access our fantastic Book Week Scotland
