Your library – it’s about more than books! 

School Holiday Fun at the Library

15 February 2021

While it is true that our book collections are at the core of a library, library services are all about nurturing the people in our communities.

School holidays have been very busy for our Children and Youth Librarian as she ran activities and our annual Summer Reading Challenge. This year, children completed a BINGO challenge, to get them reading in fun, different ways or trying new books they wouldn’t normally choose to read. Over 70 children from Westland completed the Summer Reading Challenge and all were gifted a book.  To celebrate the completion of the Challenge, children attended a special afternoon tea and stories from international storyteller, Andy Wright.

With the start of term, our regular children’s after-school activities and pre-school Wriggle and Rhyme sessions have resumed.  If you want to find out more and to book a place in an activity, contact
