Novel approach for bookworms

BIBLIOPHILES can top-up on Vitamin D while lounging on a deckchair at Inglewood library’s new outdoor reading room.

Stirling is trialling the alfresco reading rooms at Inglewood and Scarborough libraries until the end of 2017, but they could be made permanent if successful.

Replete with sun-smart parasols, soft grass, and free wi-fi for downloading e-books, Inglewood’s open-air area is already a family favourite in the warm weather and a great addition to the Summerset Arts Festival.

“Who doesn’t love a good read and who doesn’t love a bit of the great outdoors,” wondered Stirling mayor Giovanni Italiano.

“Put them together and you have the Inglewood Library’s outdoor reading room. It is such a great idea and the outdoor lounges look very inviting.”
