Crewe Town Council, Crewe Library and Ruskin School have created an exciting timetable of activities for the Summer Holidays as part of the annual Summer Reading Challenge, supported this year by Guinness World Records, The Reading Agency and Libraries all over the country. Appropriately, the theme this year is “Record Breakers”.
The partners in Crewe are asking local children to visit the Library over the summer and are encouraging them to read in a variety of ways through free activities ever Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
Thursdays will have different themes each week starting with Noisy Toys’ Science Workshop on 30th July, a Food Workshop with KidzKitchen on 6th August, Creative Writing on 13th August with author Jane Butcher, a Record Breaking Drama Workshop with TYA Creative on 20th August and animal handling with the Wild Roadshow on 27th August.
On Wednesdays and Fridays why not join the very popular all singing and dancing Storytime and Rhymetime sessions and don’t forget the monthly Let’s Lego! Session will take place on Tuesdays 4th August and 1st September.
Councillor Pam Minshall, Chair of Community and Environment Committee, at Crewe Town Council said ‘We are delighted to be working with the Library and Ruskin School to encourage children to read over the summer.’
Tom Appleby, Crewe Library Manager, said ‘It’s really exciting working with the Town Council to provide free events in Crewe. We hope that lots of children join up to the Summer Reading Challenge to really make it a Record Breaking year!’
All tickets are free however numbers are limited for most workshops due to the nature of the activity. Therefore tickets must be collected from Crewe Library prior to the session and are offered on a first come, first served basis. For more information, please contact Crewe Library on 01270 375295.
