Reading Club at the Library, by Mrs Horton
Date: 13th Dec 2017 @ 8:32pm
For the past 6 weeks, a group of year 2 children have been enjoying a weekly visit to Wallasey Village Library. We have had a great time learning how to use the library, having books hunts, reading together and eating biscuits! The children have had a super time and have impressed me with their fabulous reading. They have really enjoyed just spending quiet time in the library and browsing the large collection of books.
It's great to use the library and we would love to see more of our families using this fantastic free facility.
