February Fun At The Library...

Children’s Library - it’s Pirate Month

Lots of fun was had in the Children's library last month learning and exploring about Space. The fun times continue in February with the theme of Pirates!  Children can drop by the library any time to get creative and make their very own Treasure Map. On Saturday 21st Feb, we have a special event featuring Professional Storyteller, Su Squire, from 2-3.30pm telling 'Tales of the Sea' followed by a craft session making a Pirate Hat.  Tickets are £2 per child (including materials) and available from the Foyer desk. Book early to avoid disappointment!
