For the past 5.5 years, the downstairs of The Old Barn has been home to the Scottish arm of the South African NGO, The Bookery.

With the help of The Mitchell Library and every secondary school in Glasgow, we have collected thousands of great quality second-hand books which have been shipped to South Africa to help build libraries in disadvantaged schools.

As with all amazing journeys, this one has now come to an end. We thank everyone involved for all your hard work and generosity of time, spirit and wallets. You have helped to build 43 school libraries in South Africa, shaping the lives of thousands of children. Bravo!
