Come to the library for a summer of fun
Published on 17th July 2012
Sandwell libraries are once again challenging children to read six books during the summer holidays by taking part in ‘Story Lab’, which is the theme for this year’s Summer Reading Challenge.
'Story Lab' invites children across Sandwell to collect stickers and other incentives as they enjoy a host of stories by their favourite writers.
Incentives include a stand-up 'lab-shaped' sticker folder and stickers, a pop-up bookmark, a door hanger and a brightly-coloured zip tag.
Those completing the Challenge will be rewarded with a medal and a certificate. The Challenge was launched at Central Library on Saturday(July 14).
In addition, there will be a record 300 plus activities in which children in Sandwell can take part in, including visits from magician/balloon artist Ron Popple, musician Andy Casserley, 'Mad Science', Steve The Juggler, the Animal Man and Dudley Zoo.
There will also be a feast of play and stay sessions, storytimes, games and craft sessions across the borough, as well as face painting, craft activities, film shows and fun days!
Cabinet member for library services Councillor Linda Horton said: "So there will be no reason for children to feel bored during the summer holidays. There will be something for everyone at their local Sandwell library."
