The ‘New Chapter’ project celebrates the transition from the Stromness Library at Hellihole Road to the new facility in the Warehouse Buildings at the Pierhead. The project aims to mark the move by looking back at the old building, collating and generating material around its history, and that of lending libraries in Stromness, for this online home.
