A busy half-term week at Queen’s Park Library drew to a close on Friday with a very creative Wild & Wonderful Windows workshop, delivered by Westminster Adult Education Service. On each day during the holidays a different children’s activity was on offer, including craft events to celebrate Shrove Tuesday and welcome the Chinese New Year. Tuesday’s Mardi Gras Masks proved particularly popular, with lots of children ranging in age from three to eleven making colourful carnival masks.
As a more relaxing alternative a screening of The Boxtrolls was very well attended, while older children and teenagers enjoyed The Maze Runner. There’s a lot of demand for similar events aimed at an 11+ audience and we’re already planning future film screenings, showing titles suggested by the audience themselves. The next teen film club event will be on Saturday 7 March, after closing hours, and there’ll be plenty of free popcorn provided. Advance booking is recommended, so for film title information or to reserve a place just contact Queen’s Park Library.
