Kensal Library Blog

We had a great summer at Kensal Library!

The Summer Reading Challenge was enjoyed immensely by all who took part.  The craft sessions were popular and everyone had fun making paper dolls, sunflowers, crowns and paper planes.

Our crafts were tied in with the Summer Reading Challenges theme of Record Breakers, so longest paper chain, tallest sunflower etc.

Well done to everybody who read all six books and collected their medals and certificates!

Another craft that proved fun was our regular Saturday craft (2nd Saturday of the month).  We read a book about dinosaurs and then made a great squishy dinosaur T-Rex.

One of the best events we had at Kensal this year was our Dormouse Tea Party, to celebrate 150 years of Alice in Wonderland.

It really was enchanting, with a beautifully decorated table and fun healthy food.  We had some nice comments from the parents and children who attended.

The children listened to some of Alice in Wonderland then we had some games and activities like making our own bunny ears, colouring in red roses and making our own decorated teacup pictures to stick on our drinking cups.

The children then sat down for tea, sandwiches, fruit tarts (with a squeeze of naughty cream) and fruit kebabs and juice.

We had five copies of Alice in Wonderland chapter books and five copies of Alice in Wonderland picture books to give away which were much appreciated.

Also we had a selection of quirky hats which was a lot of fun with everybody trying on different hats!

And look at the beautiful autumn wreaths we made for our Saturday craft session, gorgeous colours.

And of course our very spooky Halloween display!  I see Ken the Kensal spider has been busy over the summer eating lots of flies.  He loves our display so much he’s decided to hang around…..!
