Current exhibitions at the Library are:

The Innerpeffray Alphabet - treasures from A- Z showcasing the variety of books and subjects in the collection.

WWI at Innerpeffray - in a special focus exhibition connected to Crieff Remembers we look at life at Innerpeffray during the Great War 1914 - 18. Guest curated by Sophie Wood.

The Divine and the Daemon - from traditional folk tales to dissertations on demonology, this mini-exhibition guest curated by Teresa Fraser explores three centuries of superstition and belief.

Butterflies on the Move - Innerpeffray is delighted to welcome the Butterflies book sculpture to the library in March and April.

This beautiful work of art is one the last in a series of mystery pieces begun in 2011 and donated in praise of libraries, literacy and the love of words by an anonymous sculptor.

In 2014, a flutter of butterflies flying from an open book (The Butterflies) was mysteriously donated and sold publicly in aid of the Macmillan charity.   Dr Colin Mackenzie and family, the sculpture’s owners, have decided that The Butterflies should continue their journey and that the story should bring wonder and inspiration to a wide audience—we are delighted that Dr Mackenzie has given us permission to show The Butterflies here at Innerpeffray -come and see it for yourself!

Entry to all exhibitions is included in the ticket price of £7.50 for adults, under 16s free of charge.

Bookings for all events can be made at the Library by phone or email.
