Walk and Talk

There are just 2 walks left from the original programme of 12. We've had great fun and the walks have been very well attended. Regular walks are now being arranged from East Linton, Gullane and North Berwick libraries, and hopefully some other branches will be able to organise their own series of walks. Email Trina Gavan, tgavan@eastlothian.gov.uk if you'd like to be added to the mailing list.
The next couple of walks will last about an hour, and will be on a variety of surfaces, some quite rough. Dress appropriately for the weather and wear reasonably sturdy footwear. After the walks we'll have light refreshments in the library and have a chat about books, reading and anything else that takes our fancy!
Please note that these walks are for adults only.
For more information and to book your place, contact the appropriate library
