It's that crazy time of year when those library staff among us (the few that are left that is) go a bit crazy (or maybe it's just me?) preparing for our annual reading extravaganza the Summer Reading Challenge.
I have a certain rep to uphold and this year is going to be bigger and better than ever. Change is afoot and this may be the last year I have the freedom, time, energy or even the will to pull out all the stops. The theme is CREEPY HOUSE and so I have lots of weird and wonderful things to do, from decorating the library to a ton of crafty activities for the kids to get up to. (And we might read some stories as well). So far I have 18 activities planned but I am drawing the line at wearing the gruffalo costume. (Grin)
Why am I telling you this? Well because what you can see on my desk (eek my photography gets worse and worse) this week are the raw materials to make this amazing wolf mask to go on the wall in my Creepy House (AKA the children's library).
It doesn't look much at the mo - you will have to come back and see how I get on and I'll be posting more of my fun and ghoulish creations over the next few weeks. Wish me luck! (and if you have any good ideas that require no effort, no outlay on materials and are suitable for youngsters please do get in touch!!)
Oh, and that WOYWW thing? We do it every week, we’re all really nosey, and you can find out about it by clicking that link.
