HAV­ING A HOOT ON LI­BRARY DAY

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

CHIL­DREN flocked to Ger­rards Cross Li­brary on Satur­day to cel­e­brate their love of books on Na­tional Li­braries Day.

Young­sters, in­clud­ing Elodie Martin, eight, came dressed as Harry Pot­ter char­ac­ters as the li­brary held a craft day themed on the boy wizard.

Man­ager Lor­raine Sur­ridge said: “All of our plans came to­gether. We had some fun ac­tiv­i­ties.

“It was busier later on be­cause the weather was so bad.

“We kept it open all day and we had lots of peo­ple in the af­ter­noon.”

Mrs Sur­ridge said all of the chil­dren had a great time.

“They were lovely,” she said. “They were ex­cel­lent. We had games out.

“We were try­ing to show li­brary ser­vices – peo­ple never thought be­fore­hand they could en­joy and a lot of games.

“We were very pleased that we could demon­strate other li­brary ser­vices.”

The li­brary cur­rently has a short story com­pe­ti­tion on­go­ing – visit www. tinyurl.com/gxlibnld for in­for­ma­tion.
