about East Kilbride New Town.
In a tent in Edinburgh during two days in August, the National Library of Scotland will focus on Scotland's New Towns.
Films, leaflets, maps, sound recordings and other collection items will be viewable in the George Street venue as part of the Edinburgh International Book Festival.
On 14 and 15 August, visitors can drop in to the 'Showcasing rare treasures' event and see films from the 1950s to the 1970s selected from the Moving Image Archive.
Facsimiles of printed items include leaflets and booklets that were used to promote the New Towns to potential residents and businesses.
Throughout the day there will be activities for all ages, including map-making and a quiz game.
