Pentlands Book Festival 2017

Pentlands Book Festival (PBF) has bagged additional help for 2017. We much appreciate the generosity of our continuing sponsors, and in addition this year we are pleased to announce that we have been successful in our application to participate in the Tesco Bags of Help Scheme. The Scheme is funded by the 5p levy on plastic bags, and PBF will be voted for, along with two other projects, in Tesco Colinton Mains between 1st July and 31st August. Each time you shop there and take your own bags, please ensure you get a token from the cashier and place it in the receptacle near the front door. The number of tokens deposited in the PBF section will affect the donation PBF will receive, so please do give us your support so that we can continue to keep the festival free for everyone.

As a reminder, PBF this year will run from 16 November to 2 December. We are still finalising the details of some events but again plan to appeal to all age ranges and cover all locations in our communities. A full programme will be published but in the meantime do "like" us on Facebook and/or keep an eye on our website www.pentlandsbookfestival.org and in Currie and Colinton libraries for further details.
