The High Life Highland Brora Mobile Library Bus is due to host a Community Climate Library between the 29th January and the 21st March, featuring a selection of books for all ages which cover a range of topics related to climate change and environmental issues.

The collection of books has been hand-picked by The Energy Advice Service, a project managed by The Kyle of Sutherland Development Trust and funded by the Scottish Government’s Climate Challenge Fund. The project aims to engage Sutherland communities in climate conversations, raising awareness of different ways to take action against climate change.

The Energy Advice Service Education Officer, Lynn Munro, will launch the Community Climate Library on the 29th January. Lynn will be on board the Mobile Library Bus for the day as it covers the Lochinver route, highlighting the new book collection to the library users and to answer any questions.

Lynn said, “With so much to celebrate in Sutherland and so many stories within our community, we want to remove the geographical barrier and ensure that climate literature reaches our remote communities. We hope the books will spark curiosity, inform everyday choices and encourage actions which lead to more sustainable lifestyles.”

The Community Climate Library will feature on the Brora Mobile Library route – please refer to the online timetable or contact Brora Library & Cultural Centre on 01408 621128 for route times and destinations.
