Record Breaking reading challenges at Kidderminster Library this summer hols

Published Tuesday, 21st July 2015

Worcestershire County Council's Kidderminster Library is holding a number of 'Record Breaking' reading challenges this summer holidays.

From July 25, every Saturday morning from 11-12 we will be trying to set our own library records.   Visitors and regulars alike can come along and see if they can hula hoop for the longest amount of time or make the tallest stack of pennies!

For those who don't want to tackle breaking record, other activities include writing poems and stories, potting a record breaking sunflower seed and making and racing cars.

Our story times and music sessions for preschool children are also continuing during the summer holidays so there is something for everyone.

Some activities are free and others are 50p, they are suitable for a range of ages but the reading challenge is for 4-12 year olds.

Holly Ferris, Kidderminster Team Leader said: "Everyone can be a record breaker this summer and you can visit Kidderminster Library to find out how. 

"While we are running lots of activities to tie in with the Record Breaking reading challenge, we hope to encourage more children to visit the library but most of all we want them and us to have fun!

"For grown-ups we will also have free computer help available with our Digital Champion volunteers. Adults can get drop in help or make appointments on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays and its free!"
