World Book Day 2015
In preparation for World Book Day on Thursday 5th March we have this display on the ground floor. In 2014 WBD organisers asked young people and adults nationwide to nominate the books that have rocked their worlds. These books helped create Writes of Passage - the ultimate list of 50 books that will change your life and keep you reading. Our display features these books.
WBD Story Time
On World Book Day, Thursday 5th March 2015, we will be holding a special hour-long Story Time from 10am-11am which will be dinosaur themed. The WBD book for under 5s is The Dinosaur That Pooped A Lot by Tom Fletcher and Dougie Poynter so please come along and listen to some stories and do some colouring in with us.
