    An avid reader in south west Scotland is on the brink of borrowing her 25,000th book from her local libraries.

    Louise Brown, 91, from Stranraer, took her first book on loan from Castle Douglas library in 1946.

    Since then she has borrowed at least six books every week throughout each year and has recently increased that to about 12 volumes every seven days.

    Library staff said they were amazed by the achievement, particularly since Mrs Brown has never had an overdue fine.
