Library Workshops for the Summer Reading Challenge

I spent a lot of last week at different libraries around Cambridgeshire, making pop-up mythical creatures with children, as part of the Mythical Maze Summer Reading Challenge activities .  I had a great time and was really impressed with all the different creatures that appeared! Here's a small selection of the dragons, mermaids, unicorns, gorgons, minotaurs and yetis that were made:

 At Buckden library, the young volunteers had made a great poster for the event too!

Big thanks to Anne, Sue, Jakki, Joy, Isabelle, Ann and Sharon from Cambridgeshire Libraries for all their help and enthusiasm over the week, and to everyone who came and did such a good job of making pop-ups!

    1. Thanks Julie! I didn't know it was on so haven't seen it live but I did get to watch it on the iPlayer which was very exciting!
