Display board in Junior Library

Last year various child-orientated organisations asked if we could display their work and we were happy to provide this free service.  We had work from the Blue Sparrows art group, Virgo Fidelis Preparatory School, Cypress Primary School and James Dixon Primary School.  Each of them had a half-term to display examples of their art/projects. If you want to have a turn come and talk to Fiona Byers, children’s librarian.
