Our next Saturday Storytime will take place on the 1st October at 12pm. We will be reading 'A Hero Called Wolf' by Lucy Rowland and Ben Mantle.

This is a feel good rhyming picture story from the writers of 'Little Red Riding Hood' and 'The Three Little Pigs and the Big Bad Book' about a giant in the library and a wolf who really wants to be a hero.

This is a completely free event with no need to book, there will also be some fun colouring-in afterwards. We look forward to seeing everyone there.



Our new Game of the Month is... Herd Mentality!


2-20 Players can play this game, it's suitable for ages 10 and up, with play lasting over 20 minutes.

This is an addictive card game with a simple black and white mission: write down the same answer as everyone else. It starts with a random question, then everyone secretly writes down an answer. If your answer is in the majority, you win cows. But if your answer is the odd one out, you'll land the Pink Cow and your herd will be worthless!  


• Verity - Colleen Hoover: Special Collections Edition 

Calling all Colleen Hoover fans! We are so excited about this Special Collectors Edition of one of Colleen Hoover's most popular books, 'Verity'.

This special edition contains a gorgeous gold cover, a letter from Colleen herself and an exclusive new chapter! 

Verity is a shocking, unpredictable thriller that will leave you reeling, making it the perfect read for these dark cosy evenings.  

• The Secret History - Donna Tartt: 30th Anniversary Edition 

Another 'Booktok' favourite! This gorgeous 30th anniversary edition of Tartt’s classic – an impeccably crafted reverse-murder mystery steeped in evocative suspense and allusions to the ancient classics – is an essential addition to any 'The Secret History' fans bookshelf!

This would make the perfect Birthday or indeed Christmas present!
