Dyslexia Chatterbooks has been running for its first academic year and as you can see from our photos we’ve had lots of fun!
The group meets on the last Tuesday of each month, from 6.00 -7.30pm in the Central Childrens’ Library, and any child aged 8-10 years, with some form of dyslexia, is most welcome.
We’re thrilled to report that Dyslexia Chatterbooks, our book group for children aged 8- 10, is going from strength to strength.
The next meeting takes place on Tuesday 20th December from 6.00 – 7.30pm in the Central Children’s Library on George IV Bridge.
…in more ways than one, because it’s also a time when it’s fun to keep wonderful secrets! Come along to our crafty events at the children’s library and make a super-secret present for someone special!
From next week we will be carrying out some work to improve the performance of the libraries’ Peoples’ Network computers. This means there may be no internet access in some libraries for up to two weeks.
There will be no internet access in any location from 14th – 16th November. Internet access will be restored to libraries on a rolling basis thereafter. Wifi will also be affected.
We need to carry out this work in order to increase bandwidth and speed up the performance of these machines. This will improve response times for logging in and internet page loading.
October holidays? Not for us! There are lots of spooky goings-on in libraries during the break – so don’t sit about the house all week; get out, get down to your local library and get active!
Here’s a selection of what’s going on – contact your nearest library to find out what activities and events they’ve got planned.
If you’re aged 6 – 11, come and make your own bat on 21st Oct from 2.30 – 3.30
After this morning’s power cut the Central Music and Children’s Libraries have reopened.
Due to a power failure the Central Children’s Library and Music Library are closed this morning. Hopefully this will get fixed and they’ll open again soon – we’ll keep you posted.
Our Circus Stars Summer Reading Challenge is in full swing. All over Edinburgh children are having fun and discovering the joys of reading.
Here at Central Library we’re especially looking forward to our exciting Juggling Words event with Lari Don, one of our favourite children’s writers and author of The Rocking Horse War, How to make a heron happy and The Big Bottom Hunt.
