Free workshops for primary schools

2004 Exhibition poster

A series of fun, free workshops for primary schools has been organised by the National Library of Scotland in association with our summer exhibition, READ ALL ABOUT IT! While the exhibition tells the story of the news in Scotland, the workshops offer primary classes the chance to:

  • learn about the changing story of the news in Scotland over the past 400 years
  • use primary sources to discover our nation's historical highs and lows
  • try hands-on activities such as Create Your Own Headline, exhibition trails and printing
  • become a news hound and write their own newspaper columns

The workshops link with the 5-14 school curriculum for Environmental Studies (Society, Science and Technology, Level A-F) and English Language (Level A-E), and run until 31 October in our George IV Bridge Building. For more information, or to book a place, contact the library's new Education and Outreach Officer, Laura Murphy (Tel: 0131-623 3700; E-mail:
