I will be running a Teddy bear sleepover story time session.

You will then be able to attend a story time session with them on Friday morning at 11am.

The July Saturday night movie will be on Saturday 10 at 8pm and we will be showing Penguin bloom. The movie is rated PG. It is free to attend but you must book your seats via the library. FOGL will have the candy bar open on the night.

Reading Olympics

To celebrate the Olympics and Paralympics I will be running a Reading Olympics. This is a reading competition open to all ages. Prizes will be awarded for different age categories. Registration will open on Tuesday 20 July, but the reading competition will commence on Friday 23 July which is the day of the Olympics opening ceremony in Tokyo. The competition will end on Monday 6 September which is the day of the Paralympics closing ceremony.

All reading options will be available. This means you can read books from the public library, school library, BorrowBox, indyreads, Story Box Library or your own home.
