It’s not too late to join the Summer Reading Challenge!

Zoo Lab visit Queen's Park Library, August 2013Have your children complained of being bored this summer holiday?

Are you looking for free things for them to do?

If so, look no further than your local Westminster library!

This years’ Summer Reading Challenge, ‘Creepy House’, is in full swing and it’s not too late to join up. Children still have time to read books from the library and receive their rewards – the stinky stickers are proving really popular!

We also have a great programme of free events to entertain children and families – here’s the full list – and to get a taste of what awaits, here’s what’s been going on this week in Westminster’s children’s libraries:

Creepy House pop-up workshop at Maida Vale Library

Pop up workshop at Maida Vale Library, August 2013
Children had great fun learning how to make their own pop up creepy houses with Georgia, Westminster Archives’ Conservator. Maida Vale library is now open in its old space on the ground floor, so go along and pay them a visit!

Zoo Lab visit Queen's Park Library, August 2013Creepy Crawly House at Queen’s Park Library

Zoo Lab visited Queen’s Park library this week and brought along lots of creepy crawlies to delight children and terrify the adults! Anna from Zoo Lab showed them cockroaches, giant African land snails, a corn snake, a hermit crab and a tarantula, among others…

Drama workshop for children at St John's Wood Library, August 2013Haunted House drama workshop at St John’s Wood Library

Children were encouraged to use their imaginations to dream up a creepy house of their own, and then act it out. They had a brilliant time playing games and pretending to be ghosts, ghouls and zombies with Bebie, the drama coach from actingworks.
