We've got some great things coming up this half term at Clitheroe Library for children and their families!
Firstly, we're into the last month of SCART Club, our summer reading activity. Some of your pupils may have completed, or be on their way to finishing; others may still like to sign up! There's still time to get everything done before the deadline on Saturday 28th September. If you have an opportunity for a member of library staff to pop into assembly in the next couple of weeks to spur on those taking part, that would be fantastic.
We'd also like to let you know that we're celebrating Roald Dahl Day in the library from 2.30pm-4.30pm on Friday 13th September. We know many of you will be marking this occasion in school, and we'd love for children and their families to come along and tell us about their day, show us their costumes, and join in with the games, craft and quiz we'll be doing here.
On Saturday 5th October it will be our annual Fun Palace! The library will be playing host to all sorts of unusual and exciting activities run by individuals and groups from the local community. This year we'll be doing a Lego challenge and remaking the library in Minecraft, along with poetry, sports, a hedgehog trail, a photo scavenger hunt, and various arts and crafts - including the chance to draw on the library walls (sort of)!
Last but by no means least, we're thrilled to be welcoming Gav Cross and his Traditional Tales with a Twist on Wednesday 23rd October, as part of the Big Imaginations Children's Theatre Festival. He'll be telling silly stories and folktales from around the world in his giant inflatable story cave, with sound and projection. There'll be three performances: 10.15am (ages 4+), 11.30am (ages 7+) and 2pm (ages 7+), and tickets will be available soon. More details at spotonlancashire.co.uk.
