Scottish Poetry Library

Scottish Poetry Library

The Scottish Poetry Library brings people and poems together. We offer a unique national resource and are advocates for the art of poetry, and Scottish poetry in particular.
We present poetry to the public in many different ways, through our collections, events, education programme, publications and campaigns such as National Poetry Day, as well as through our work with partners to produce innovative pairings of poetry with other arts and activities.
We have the professional skills to open up the world of poetry through librarianship, educational services and in an advisory capacity, whether on an individual or institutional basis; we promote knowledge of Scottish poetry and poets nationally and internationally.
