At Orkney Library & Archive we have two rooms which can be hired for meetings, exhibitions or presentations. Please note that we do not currently provide facilities for video-conferencing. If video-conferencing facilities are required they are available at Orkney College.
The MacGillivray Room is a large and comfortable room with adjoining kitchen facilities, while the Carnegie Room is more suitable for smaller groups. We also have a range of presentation and display equipment available for hire. You can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The meeting room facilities at the Warehouse Buildings in Stromness are managed by OIC Customer Services so if you have any questions regarding availability of these rooms please contact email@example.com. There are three rooms for hire; the John Rae Room, the Marjory Corrigall Room and the Archie Bevan Room. All three rooms have access to kitchen facilities.
