Back to school list – uniform all sorted, check. School bag all packed, check. Summer Reading Challenge medal to show everyone – hold on, no!!
Don’t worry, there is still time to get your medal for reading 6 books over the summer. The Challenge is not over at the end of August – most libraries are running Record Breakers until 12 September, so you can visit at weekends or after school during the week to collect your medal and complete the Challenge!
As well as children getting their rewards and stickers for reading their books, there have been even more fun events happening in our libraries:
Musician Giles (above) came to Queen’s Park Library to make instruments with children. He brought along materials that he helped children recycle into stringed instruments, drums and even trumpets! It was really great fun.
Actor and storyteller John Kirk toured Paddington, Maida Vale and St John’s Wood libraries to tell his adaptation of Terry Deary’s the Sea Monsters. He told tales of ocean voyages, involving the audiences in singing sea shanties and helping to act out the story. Very entertaining – here he is in action as some of the characters!
