As part of the Summer Reading Challenge, Mythical Maze, Chepstow Library welcomed Princes and Princesses to their storytime and craft session.
The children enjoyed The Charmless Prince by Jeanne Willis, Princess Smartypants by Babette Cole and Princess Penelope and the Runaway Kitten by Alison Murray.
Following the stories they made some wonderful crowns and tiaras to wear home!
As part of the Mythical Maze Summer Reading Challenge Chepstow Library held a Dragon themed stories and craft session for children aged between 5 and 8 years.
The children were completely enthralled listening to stories which included George and the Dragon by Chris Wormell, Zog by Julia Donaldson and Winnie’s Midnight Dragon by Valerie Thomas.
Afterwards the children created some brilliant Dragon masks to take home with them!
Chepstow Library staff and customers gave a warm welcome to Steve and Debbie and their feathered friends, Oscar the Barn owl, Bo Bo the Scops Owl and Hooch the Bengal Eagle Owl.
Steve gave an informative talk about the owls and answered questions. Customers were then given the opportunity to get closer to the owls and even hold them!
Great morning was enjoyed by all!
As part of the Summer Reading Challenge for Monmouth library, children aged five to eight listened to several stories with the mythical maze theme about dragons. Then they each made and coloured a dragon mask and there were many wonderful bright and colourful masks as the photo shows.
On Saturday 12 July Chepstow Library welcomed Ann Churchill to launch the 2014 Summer Reading Challenge, Mythical Maze. Children enjoyed stories and made their own pop-up book with the Mythical Maze characters.
The Challenge is free for all children aged between 4 to 12. Each child that registers for the Challenge will be presented with a Mythical Maze poster. During the summer holidays, as they read some of the great books that we have in the library, they will be rewarded with stickers for their poster. Children can read whatever they like – picture books, audio books, joke books, fact books – they all count. Children who complete the Challenge will be presented with a medal, certificate and other prizes. So come along to Chepstow Library and join the Mythical Maze Challenge soon!
