Busy, busy, busy!

It’s hard to believe but today we are over one month into our Summer Reading Programme – where has the time gone?

We’d like to share with you some of the great things that have been happening at our libraries over the past four weeks.

In the reading cave at Bowman Library.
 Over 1200 young people have signed up to our Summer Reading Programme! A great wave of reading is happening all over Winchester as we speak and all those super summer readers are making sure to log all their precious reading minutes.  It’s not too late to sign up. Just click here or come and see us at your local library.

Things got off to a great start at the Bowman Library on June first with the Rally for Reading. There was lots of reading, a spot of digging and even an appearance by a big digger!

The preschool storytimes have been packed with eager children and adults, and librarians have been spotted in their pyjamas entertaining young readers at PJ Storytime.
The wonderful Mokihana paid us a visit and entranced us with her Hawaiian stories, chants, songs and hula dances that celebrate the earth.

Our very special friends the Paws for reading dogs are visiting us too. How could you resist coming along and sharing a story with one of these gorgeous creatures?

We hope to see you at the library soon. Check back here tomorrow for more highlights from our Summer Reading Lists.

Happy reading!
