Summer Reading Challenge Medal Ceremonies 2019

Congratulations to our little library users, who have spent the summer attempting to read 6 books in the holidays! Those that completed the Summer Reading challenge came for our medal ceremonies (we had to have two as they were so popular!), and pictured below are some of the 75+ that completed it. They made rockets, had their face painted, and picked up their certificate and medal. The challenge is designed to encourage children to visit the library and read more, and that's hopefully what they will continue to do, as we put brand new books in the library all the time.

Walkley Wordsmiths, 13 October 2019

Words have power. They can be drawn, bent, cut and welded with other words to produce a meaning. This requires a specific talent to be successful. If you are you a fan of creative writing, then this event is for you! Come along to Walkley Community Centre to enjoy an evening of poems, stories and the fun of spoken words from local poets, and an open mic and readings from our "In our Day" dementia project. Also, local poet Kevin Hanson will present his latest collection of poems "The Insect Horizon"! More about the book here. The event, which is part of Heritage Open Days, is free to attend, but tickets must be acquired in advance via Eventbrite or Walkley Library.
