Summer Reading Challenge 2018 - Mischief Makers

This year’s Summer Reading Challenge runs through the summer holidays  until Saturday 8th September 2018. The Reading Challenge asks 4-11 year olds to borrow and read any six library books during the summer holidays, a time when children’s reading skills often dip.    To help encourage them to take part, there are fun activities, and stickers and prizes to collect. 

For more information, go to the Library events for children and families page.

Free computer workshops

This summer we are offering free computer workshops at a couple of our libraries: Kentish Town and Kilburn. You can come any week for as many weeks as you need, for example you can learn how to send email attachments, or pay your parking on line.

For details of times and dates, and workshops at other community venues, see attached computer workshops poster
