There was plenty of
pranktastic fun at Hethersett Library when dads, uncles, granddads and
children came together for a morning featuring children’s book character
The library was packed
for the special “Bring your Dad to the library” event. Horrid Henry
helped families to share stories, write jokes, make masks and even take
part in a yucky dip.
There are 16 Horrid Henry
stories that have been translated into 25 languages and children were
encouraged to choose one they hadn’t read to share at home with their
families. The event, which was organised by Norfolk Library Service,
formed part of a year of celebrations for the National Year of Reading.
Hethersett Library is
also taking part in a Once Upon a Time family competition. Families are
being asked to write and illustrate their own fairy story featuring all
the elements of the genre such as princes, princesses, giants, dragons and
witches. Closing date for entries, which can be left at Hethersett
Library, is 27th June. The winning entry will receive a
Jarrolds gift voucher.
Hethersett Library is also holding introductory e-mail tutorials throughout the year where people can find out how to get in touch with family and friends electronically. Booking for this is required and can be made on 01603 810188.
