Last year’s Summer Reading Challenge was our first as volunteers in Knebworth Community Library but we were well-prepared by the Community Services team with posters, bookmarks and activity sheets. As volunteers we had time to make some school visits; we were warmly welcomed by the schools in Datchworth, Knebworth and Woolmer Green and were pleased to see many of these children coming into the library to sign up for the Challenge. It turned out to be a really fun, busy summer, with over 160 children taking part. Between them, they read 1000 books, brought us some fabulous colouring-in and earned many medals and certificates.
We are looking forward to this year’s Challenge, especially as we are in the very unusual position of being temporarily located in St Martin’s Church, Knebworth. All our library activities are still taking place - we brought all our books, magazines, talking books and public PCs with us, and continue to offer all the same facilities as before.
