Happy 50th Birthday Kensal!

We have had a wonderful start this month celebrating Kensal Library’s 50th birthday.  The day started with a special Baby Rhyme Time where we read some stories about birthdays and sung birthday themed songs and rhymes then the children were treated to milk and cookies followed by unwrapping a large birthday present containing, much to the delight of the children, Bookstart teddy bears!

Later on at the main event our customers came to help us celebrate with some African dancing and the children were enthralled with the face painter, Natalie, who created some marvellous designs and who, needless to say, was busy for the entire event!

Also popular was Ethnnie Farry who kept the children occupied with sewing some beautiful birthday badges.

A beautiful cake was made for the event by Gail’s Artisan Bakery and it really was the best carrot cake I’ve tasted!!


All three Golborne ward councillors paid a visit and showed their support for Kensal Library and Emma Dent Coad gave a short speech and helped with the cutting of the cake.

All in all it was a great event.  Thank you so much to our users for helping us celebrate and for signing our birthday card.

And thank you so much to all our staff who helped with organising the event and who helped out on the day and turned up in support and to celebrate with us.

Happy birthday to us!
