BwD libraries celebrate World Book Day

Published Friday 4 March 2022 at 14:31

Children, parents and teachers have experienced the joy of reading on World Book Day at libraries across Blackburn with Darwen.

Library staff got into the spirit and dressed as characters from popular children’s titles to celebrate World Book Day 2022.

They hosted a class visit at Mill Hill Library, during which Year 3 children enjoyed an interactive storytelling experience and an introduction to the wide range of resources available for loan.

Staff also paid a visit to a local nursery dressed as the popular Very Hungry Caterpillar. The children were delighted to join in with the story of the caterpillar’s search for food, and surprised by its transformation into a beautiful butterfly.

Back at Blackburn Library, the caterpillar went on a walkabout, meeting customers of all ages.

Darwen Library also opened its doors – outside of regular hours – to host a private visit for a Year 4 class. The children were guided through the wonderful Children’s Library by staff dressed as Little Lucy Lupin and a terrifying lion!

Library Services Manager Adele Karwat said:

The finale of the visit saw staff and children having a roaring-good-time listening to a reading from The Lion in the Library by Dave Skinner.
The children all had a brilliant time and can’t wait to get reading more exciting books. If you’re not already a member of the library, please do come and join, it’s free to join and we have thousands of wonderful books for all to enjoy, as well as so much more.
