Ilfracombe Library is holding a number of Summer activities for children. Join the Circus Stars Summer Reading Challenge!
To take part in the challenge, children need to pick up their starter pack which includes a 3D stage and then read six books during the summer to get their certificate-collecting scratch and sniff stickers along the way! For all children that complete the challenge, there will be a fun free activity in September.
This year the theme is Circus Stars! Visit the Library between 10.30am-12.30pm on Tuesday 26th July to pick up your starter pack and have your face painted as a clown, then learn some circus skills with a free workshop with Steve from Circus Berzercus-no need to book, just pop in!
The fun continues on Friday 5th August from 2pm until 4pm when children aged 3+ can hear a circus story and then make a paper clown to take home for just £1 per child.
Look the part and become a circus star by making a crazy haired clown hat workshop on Friday 12th August from 2pm until 4pm. Suitable for ages 3+, this activity also costs just £1 per child.
Is your house like a circus in the summer holidays? Add to the crazy atmosphere by making your very own Big Top complete with mini circus characters to take home on Friday 19th August from 2pm-4pm. £1 per child, for ages 5 and up.
Finally, A Bug's Life with Devon Wildlife Trust will be held at the library on Thursday 25th August from 2pm until 4pm. No it's nothing to do with the circus, but don't let that stop you joining in the nature based activity. Learn about invertebrates and join in some crafts for ages 5+. £1 per child.
Booking is essential for all activities apart from the Circus Berzercus workshop on 26th July. To book your child a place, pop in to the library or give them a call on 01271 862388.
