SWOP visit to Dundee Central Library – March 2019

On Thursday 28th March SWOP visited Dundee Central Library. We were warmly welcomed by Carol Howarth and her colleagues. After the regular SWOP meeting/roundtable we had an informative and interesting talk from our speaker for the day Professor Colin Reid, Professor in Environmental Law, at the University of Dundee. We heard all about his fascination for bizarrely entitled Statutory Instruments and his work with various parliamentary committees and the consultation process in general. Following refreshments we were given a tour of the facilities in the Opportunities room at the Central Library. We heard all about the fantastic work involved in their volunteer network and visited the Macmillan Cancer Information and Support Service, and saw the new Makerspace, which is home to 3D printers and encourages the spirit of creativity in Dundee!
