Pirates of Leith are Go

Arr, me hearties! It’s time to solve the clues and get hunting for World Book Night.


For the first bit you don’t have to go anywhere, just use www.ourtownstories.co.uk to solve each clue and discover our secret pirate postcode.







Here’s how to crack the code:


One you’ve cracked it put your best pirate feet forward and walk to the postcode area to claim your booty, look out for the pirate flag and make your voyage between 4pm and 6pm.

You booty is treasure indeed, it’s a copy of Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island.


There are prizes hidden in the books too (tickets to Royal Yacht Britannia, pirate stickers, Tesco vouchers, Knit Your Own Scotland book, pirate pencil-case, pirate breakfast at The Haven Cafe and much more!)


Read more about our treasure hunt on the Leith Library blog and see Pirates of Leith Photos in our Pirates of Leith Facebook Album. You can also follow the fun on twitter, pirates will be tweeting from @leithlibrary.
