Summer fun

Record Breakers 2015: Recycling Record Breakers event at Pimlico LibraryIt’s been a bumper year so far for the Summer Reading Challenge, with lots of children joining ‘Record Breakers’ in Westminster libraries – over one thousand children by the end of the first full week, and many more since.

The library staff and all our lovely reading volunteers have been kept busy with children telling us about their books, getting their stickers and some even receiving medals already for reading six! And of course there have been some great events in libraries too. Here are just a few from this week:

Record Breakers 2015: Monkey Music event at St John's Wood LibraryThere have been craft events from the Recycling Team who organised some ‘recycling races’ – above is Atif at Pimlico Library joining in.

Monkey Music have been visiting some of our under 5s’ sessions with singing, instruments, bubbles and fun – very popular! Here is Aimee in action at St John’s Wood Library.

Maida Vale Library hosted a ‘Make your own Dinosaur’ event. We were swamped with about 30 enthusiastic children who made lots of Glitterasauruses, and Doyouthinkhesauruses and other colourful beasties. A local play scheme attended so there were lots of messy prehistoric antics:

Dance company Bollywood Vibes came to Church Street Library – here is Olivia performing a routine with some of the children (and mums!) who came along. It was great fun, the library staff wanted to take part too!
