During the current school holiday period the library is running its regular Summer Reading Challenge – a programme aimed at children from 4 to 11 years. The “challenge” is straightforward and enjoyable: reading at least six library books (any sort of book – library staff will be on hand to help choose) and visiting the library regularly.
This year’s programme is entitled Mischief Makers. Children can help characters from the Beano comic on the trail of buried treasure.
To get started children sign up at the library. Then for each book they read, they will get a sticker to put on a map of mischief of Beanotown. Tool stickers will help them find the treasure.
Here’s the list of special activities the library is offering during this period, all on Thursdays – except the celebration party on September 15th -and from 2pm to 4pm.
July 26th Arts and crafts
August 2nd Quiz and treasure hunt
