There was no parachute jumping. Or Greek wrestling. Apart from that, Marylebone Library’s recent Open Day included pretty nearly every activity you could think of.
A book sale – well, that you might expect. And face painting is ever-popular. But finger knitting, a honey challenge, gardening without a garden, and urban beekeeping? Suddenly it starts to look interesting.
And so it proved. They poured through the doors, occupied all the chairs and most of the space, and showed every sign of enjoying themselves. There were old friends, of course – regular library users – but also new faces, including people living and working close to our new location, coming to check us out.
Was there anything else? Oh yes! Internet training, a motivational talk, booking your holiday online, and henna body art.
Enough? Well, not quite. There was also a book quiz, bike MOTs, and cake (including one kindly donated by Paul Patisserie).
You can’t go wrong with cake.
