What’s going on in Community Libraries?
Space Chase Success!
Volunteers in Community Libraries have had a busy summer talking to children from their local area about the books they have read for The Summer Reading Challenge. We have seen some wonderful displays created to engage the children in this year’s ‘Space Chase’ theme. Did you spot Bookstart Bear in his astronaut costume at Brookmans Park Community Library? Or, have your photo taken with the astronaut cut board at Cuffley Community Library?
The number of children visiting our community libraries, to take part in the challenge, has risen again this year and this is testament to all the hard work our volunteer groups put into promoting the challenge at local events and schools. For example in Sawbridgeworth Community Library the number of children starting the challenge increased by 46% and in Kings Langley Community Library the number rose by 49%.
