LBHF Libraries are venturing into space this summer on the anniversary of the moon landing. At Hammersmith Library they are rocketing amongst the planets whilst ‘Ronnie’ the Space Chase robot meets and greets those taking the Reading Agency’s Space Chase Summer Reading Challenge!
All the libraries have exciting events taking place this summer. The experience at Shepherds Bush library is truly out of this world with the rocket circling the planets.
Come and meet John Kirk the storyteller as he blasts through a trio of out of this world stories. In Jonathan Emmett’s ‘Bringing Down the Moon’, Mole tries to reach the beautiful moon but soon learns that its not as near as it looks. In Simon James’ ‘The Boy from Mars’, a Martian comes to stay at Stanley’s house whilst his Mum is away and gets Stanley into trouble and Dom Conlon reveals the story behind the nursery rhyme in ‘Why the Cow Jumped Over the Moon’. These storytelling sessions are suitable for children aged 3 and over and are happening on Wednesday 24 July. Free and no need to book, just turn up.
Then if you would like to play the part of animal ranger come along to meet Zoolab’s team of animals and rangers. The rangers will tell you about the animals and you may even get the chance to hold one of them. Advanced booking is essential.
For more stories, if you are 5 to 7 years, come along to a Cat & Hutch Space Stories workshop. For these just book through Eventbrite.
If stories and animals are not enough and you are 8 to 11 years of age come and meet the Education Team from QPR Community Trust for fun and interactive activities linking physical activity with reading and poetry.
If you would like to meet up and chat about the books you have enjoyed over the summer Hammersmith Library are running two special Reading Agency Chatterbooks sessions for children 6 to 12 years.
