To celebrate World Book Day 2018, pupils from Bushbury Hill Primary School enjoyed four separate visits to Low Hill Library on Wednesday.
The visits were supported by members of the HeadStart Schools Team, and encouraged the children to celebrate reading while reminding them what an exciting place a library can be. While at the library, the children listened to stories which encourage conversations about their resilience and emotional well-being.
The pupils walked to and from the library in mixed year groups and, once there, were treated to ‘storytime’ with Elisabeth Whitehouse from the Wolverhampton Library Service. All children were given an introduction to the library service and the many benefits it has to offer. They were given a tour of the library and then shown how to borrow books from the library using their easy-to-use self-service machine.
The children were so excited and enjoyed sharing books together. The library issued approximately 210 new membership cards! Many children who couldn’t get a membership card on the day were keen to come back soon to register and get theirs.
The event was one of a range of activities happening across the libraries in the city. See the following press release for more:
