You may remember that we wrote in August about the ‘twinning’ of Church Street Library with Bibliotheque Place des Fetes in Paris. The children’s pictures shown in that post were sent to the French library and are on display.
In return, we received pictures done by the Paris children during their summer workshops – they drew, painted and collaged the area in which they live. Some of the children were very creative and imagined places they would like to live, some others drew Place des Fetes and its shops and buildings.
These pictures show some of the children with their pictures before they were sent to us. Come into Church Street Library to see the real pictures and to find out more about the twinning project.
A year 8 class from the local King Solomon Academy has started a correspondence with a school in Paris. Each student has a pen friend and will describe his life and where he lives. Soon the children from King Solomon will visit the library, where they will be able to borrow children’s chapter books in French, kindly donated by the London French Institute.
And finally, in the near future we will be hosting a presentation and photographs about Place des Fetes library and the local area in the adult lending library.
