Fine Books & Collections Visits The Innerpeffray Library in Scotland

In June, I had the pleasure of spending several weeks in Scotland.  One of the highlights of the trip was a visit to The Innerpeffray Library in a beautiful, secluded section of Perthshire.  The Innerpeffray Library is the oldest lending library in Scotland, originally founded in 1680.

I was treated to a tour of the library and its grounds by its delightful Keeper of Books, Lara Haggerty, who was previously profiled in our Bright Young Librarians series on this blog.  Below is a "wee" video I compiled of the visit using my iPhone:
