Tours

Saturday was Doors Open Day in Edinburgh and we offered tours of The Library. It was jolly fun.

I love talking about the Library’s history and treasures. All of my victims seemed to enjoy themselves but I was only really telling them things I find interesting myself:

Blah blah blah… 1532… Blah blah blah… Medal for bravery… Blah blah blah… RLS… Blah blah blah… Egyptian mummy….

It was great fun. I was able to remain smiling and animated and got them laughing  sometimes too. I wouldn’t like to do it every day but it’s a lark on occasion. Just another day in the varied and wonderful life of the Library.
