Absolute Beginners performs English songs for 'English Day' - Place des Fetes library, Paris, May 2014Church Street Library’s French ‘twin’, Place des Fetes Library in Paris held an ‘English Day’ in late May. They offered tea and cakes all day to their customers. Absolute Beginners performed a live concert of English pop and rock hits, there were displays of books in English and about England all around the library, plus quizzes and games for children.

The event was a success and an opportunity to talk about the twinning project and Church Street Library.

A reciprocal event – a French Day – will take place at Church Street Library on 14 July. Customers will be able to hear French music, taste some French cakes and cheeses, participate in quizzes, look at book and photography displays and take some French recipes home. We look forward to seeing you there!
