Stewart Bain


Stewart Bain works at the award-winning Orkney Library & Archive. He runs the @OrkneyLibrary Twitter account which now has more followers than there are people living in Orkney.

In 2016 Stewart was voted Librarian of the Year despite not being a librarian. He is hopeful that one day he will win the BAFTA for Soap and Continuing Drama despite not being in Eastenders.

Having been politely asked to leave school Stewart is surprised and delighted to have recently graduated from the Open University with BA (Hons) English Literature.

Stewart lives in Orkney beside two fields. He has never been to Nando’s or travelled abroad. He is basically Hannah Hauxwell for the Twitter generation. But with running water and a shoddier work ethic.
