This is a photo of our progress on the space cake we are making for LiveWire’s 1st birthday (The cakes a lie). Yes, LiveWire have been up and running for a whole year now. So to Celebrate, library groupes from around Warrington have decided to make a masive wall display of birthday cakes, with comments writen on all the candles.
As the libronauts we have chosen a space themed cake tho give to LiveWire, this image is how our cake is getting along:
There will be an easter hunt at padgate library on the 26th march. You could get the chance to win an Easter egg. There will be two hunts during the day, the first is at 11:00, and the second is at 15:00. Dont be late.
Movellas, Random House, the Sony Reader Store and The Reading Agency have joined forces to find the best young writing superstar. The icing on the cake? Malorie Blackman will be picking the overall winner!
Are you the next J.K. Rowling, Michael Morpurgo or Malorie Blackman? Is there half a novel hidden in your desk or in a computer folder that could be the next Hunger Games? Or maybe you have an idea and just needed that little bit of inspiration to get writing…
On the 23rd of February, two people from libronauts went to St Helens and did a writing courses with Chris Everitt. They wrote some poems and started to write a story using some cards that has been given. The cards were, A blank card, A mn=an and a women with a wall inbetween them, a tap with an empty glass underneath it, Perfume and colone, a unbraella and a handbag, a car and some car keys, a person passing a passport over a desk to someone, two people one sat down and one stood up with a question mark between them, a hotel and a phone, a house and a phone, a forklift lift with a plane in a background, a plane taking off, a plane coming into land and a person bring in luggage, we used theses to creat our own story :) these shall be shared when we meet again
Curtis Jobling , was a pleasure to have visit the library, he is the best author we have had visit since Gregg Olsen’s revisit, granted the only but moving on. Curtis Joblin loved by all, talked about his animation work, he drew some pictures of the bob the builder charactors and his wereworld teen bookn series.
Local authorCurtis Joblingwill be visiting both Padgate and Birchwood Libraries to talk about his series of teenage books, Wereworld and his animation skills. He is famously known for his work on Bob the builder, Raa Raa The Lion and Frankenstein’s cat.
Would you rather be a circle?
The My Voice project that we have been part of has changed its name to the Reading Activists, due to alternative reasons.
So now I say:
Goodbye My Voice and hello Reading Activists
Last week we had the arts council and the reading agency and asked us for our views on the library and any changes that could be made and gave us some of their opinions. We had a great discussion on how we could get teenagers to join the library, we know most of you come in after school and only come to go on the computer. But have you never though of reading a book and going on an adventure in your head or going to new places and never leaving the room. You could even listen to an audio book no need for paper, or even better you could read a book and listen to an audio book at the same time. It’s so easy to listen to an audio book you could play on your phone do homework or anything really. It’s a new expeiance and something fun to tryout.
