Shetland’s mobile library service was a lifeline during pandemic

I was delighted to call into Shetland Library to meet Supershelty and Bookbug, the library’s cuddly mascots!

Karen Fraser’s enthusiasm is catching, and the bright, welcoming library offers far more than just books. There are cosy seating areas throughout as well as computers available for anyone to use, with a helping hand never far away if needed.

I also heard about the mobile library service that changed the way they worked in order to be able to operate throughout most of the pandemic and was a lifeline to many people during that difficult time.
