Library Life after Lockdown
Following almost four months of lockdown, the directors and volunteers of the library are chomping at the bit to bring the virtual world back to reality. We have not been sitting quietly but have been busy planning an exciting programme of events to include trips, visits, book sales, musical evenings, workshops, talks and of course the Village Show. We are sure that you are itching to join us on a bus trip – Covid permitting, we were initially thinking of Bath and Tenby. If you have any requests, please let us know.
Competition 8 – 12 year olds
Design an illustration for a cover for your favourite book. We will print the best entry in next month’s What’s On and display all entries in the library for all to see when we are next open.
Eager Readers Some of the new titles for children
Clwb Clonc – Our library’s Welsh language group were treated on March 12th to our second virtual storytelling session. A range of stories this time from the legend of the Unicorn to classics of Welsh Culture with a new twist presented by: – Fiona Collins – a Welsh learner who has been a stalwart of the storytelling community in Wales for many years; Gwen – an accomplished newcomer; Ffion Phillips – a young storyteller from Llanrwst who has a sparkling future ahead of her as a performer. Many thanks to Eirwen Malin for organising this event.
Sylvia’s Book of the Month.
The Paris Library by Janet Skelsien Charles
This book has been recommended to me. It is based on the World War 2 story of the heroic librarians at the American Library in Paris. Reviews describe it as an unforgettable story of romance, friendship, family and the power of literature to bring us together. I can’t offer a review as I have only just started it, does sound like a really good read. If anyone has read it, please send us your thoughts.
This was written by James Harvey a sought-after quiz master from Singapore. Thirteen questions, thirteen answers, each answer begins with a letter from the words: WENVOE LIBRARY. Just to make it more challenging the letters are not in order. If an answer has more than one word, use the first letter of the first word, e.g., if an answer was William Shakespeare, you would use the W. Tip: if you don’t know an answer, move to the next questions. As you eliminate letters it will narrow down the possible starting letters for the missing answers.
