An Inspiring Story of Self Help and Empowerment

Girvan Library, Thursday 8 March 2018, 2pm

Popular local author Lesley Sehli will be joining us at Girvan Library to talk about her book ‘He said die, I say no!’. Lesley was the first British woman to hold a uniquely privileged position behind the veil in Saudi Arabia and her work reveals an underworld of prostitution, pain and imprisonment and in her capacity, she helps those she can. Married into an elite, powerful family, where money and riches were no object and then left destitute, fighting for survival against a deadly disease; her experience proves that things that can be presumed might hold you back will actually push you forward, and the truth can set you free!

“An enthralling narrative of shifting identity juxtaposed with New York in crisis, Till the Dust Settles is a wickedly unnerving thriller from a writer who demands attention.” Critically acclaimed author Caro Ramsay

The 1st Alloway Guides had a sleepover at the library

May 12, 2017

Last Friday night the 1st Alloway Guides enjoyed a sleepover at Ayr’s Carnegie Library. Before it was time to get into their sleeping bags, the girls enjoyed a book treasure hunt, read all about the history of the library and researched their family tree. The girls had a great time and said it was a night they will never forget… lucky no one told them about our resident library ghost before the lights went out! 👻 😱
