Some of children getting ready to join The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party

Over ninety children at Kirkheaton Library took part in the 2015 Summer Reading Challenge promoted nationally by The Reading Agency. This year’s theme was ‘World Record Breakers’ and children had to read at least 6 books over the summer holidays. Successful readers were presented with a gold ‘medal’. Various weekly craft activities, puzzles and games were held at the library culminating in a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party picnic on the field where children attempted various records such as building the highest Lego tower.
