Bookbug Week is a great time to celebrate our National Bookbug Programme and there’s something for everyone! Our theme this year is Bookbug’s Big Adventure and there are hundreds of FREE special events taking place all over Scotland. Find your local Bookbug Session and special events here.

The flagship event is happening on Monday 20 May at Vogrie Country Park in Midlothian from 10am-4pm and we’re getting very excited. Get ready to go on a big adventure: Midlothian Ranger Service will be helping us explore the great outdoors. There will be lots of Bookbug Sessions throughout the day, as well as face painting, balloon making, bubble-blowing and plenty more fun and games. We're looking forward to seeing you there! We’re also delighted that Catherine Rayner will be doing some live drawings and reading her lovely book, Solomon Crocodile. All the event details are here.

We're looking forward to seeing you there!

Cate James, who designed all of the Bookbug Week artwork (including the picture above), is also doing an exclusive event in Perth and Kinross on Tuesday May 21. Congratulations to Perth and Kinross' Bookbug Co-ordinators who were the lucky winners of that special event!
