Celebrates National Library Day
Saturday 4th February
Instigated by Alan Gibbons, a kind supporter of our library who has visited us several times, to celebrate the contribution libraries make to the community.
For this special day we are organising some fun things for you to enjoy. Including:
Prize Draw – for a week of free DVD and Music loans. The winner will be drawn from the library card numbers used to issue items on the day.
A ‘post-it’ board for library users to write their well wishes for this library and/or libraries in general, which will be photographed for our archives to mark the occasion and record the names of people who used this library on this special National Libraries Day 2012
Kate will be here with her Usborne bookstall.
There will be the Usborne duck treasure hunt for children under 5 along with other Treasure Hunts for 5 to 8 year olds and for children aged 9 and over.
A book review competition for adults – best one wins a prize. The top 20 reviews will be posted on our website for other library users to read.
