BookBug Week 2015 (May 18th-24th 2015)

This May, children across Scotland will be enjoying a special week of BookBug events. The Bookbug initiative – which is funded by the Scottish Government and managed by Scottish Book Trust – provides every child in Scotland with four free packs of books and runs free Bookbug Sessions at libraries and community centres across the country.

The theme of this year’s event is Bookbug’s Big Bedtime Story and bedtime-themed events will be taking place in every local authority in Scotland, with special appearances from some of the UK’s best-loved children’s authors and illustrators. Families can look forward to the flagship event at Rozelle House and Maclaurin Art Gallery in South Ayrshire on Tuesday 19 May, schools and nurseries across the country will be given the opportunity to participate in a fun-filled Authors Live event, streamed live over the internet on Thursday 21 May. Also some fantastic Bookbug prizes will be up for grabs via Bookbug’s Facebook page ( and Twitter (@Bookbug_SBT) throughout the week.
