Take a look at our minibeast visit!

Getting up close and personal with some of the creatures you could find in your garden at North Kensington Library last week. The children loved it! One of the huge cockroaches made a bid for freedom and we had to point out that the library was not interested in taking new lodgers…

With many thanks to Holland Park Ecology Centre team,Trevor Bowyer and Hannah Williams. To keep updated about our events and activities in the libraries, follow us on Twitter, find us on Facebook or look at our website.

The Little Paper Boat

What a treat! A quick post with some nice photos of our North Kensington Library audience enjoying this interactive storytelling session, The Little Paper Boat, and learning some Spanish words with Jose Maestre, teacher.

Jose will have more sessions like this one in various libraries. We’re looking forward to seeing him again!

Zoom zoom zoom…

A couple of weekends ago our Notting Hill Gate Library Storytime and Craft session had a rocket theme! Many thanks to Neyla (pictured) and her parents for this photo! We really enjoyed our session which also included an impromptu sing along of ‘Zoom zoom we’re going to the Moon’.

If you’re interested in crafty fun, we are having a special Baby Rhyme Time and Craft session on Saturday 31st May (this weekend!) where we will be ‘Going on a Bear Hunt’ and making Grizzly Bear Collages as well as find all about Grizzlies- so come along and join us!

 The Crocheting Divas came to NHG Library on 20th May. Nahid, our Library Assistant, had some fun joining the Divas (pictured). If you want to learn how to crochet in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere, why not give it a go? For more information about the group please take a look at the Crocheting Divas facebook group or contact Shirley at crochetingdivas6@gmail.com.
