Scottish poet and former Makar of Scotland, Liz may not surprise with her choices. Her knowledge and passion for Robert Burns are second to none, brought to life by handwritten treasures from the collection.
Leanne is a former Scotland international midfielder and current player and assistant coach for Motherwell. She has a natural affinity for one of the National Library's largest collections in the Treasures exhibition.
Writer, author and host of his own Literary Salon, Damian takes a different approach in selecting his treasures from the collection, though both are significant to the art of storytelling.
