Choc tactics at the library

Tuesday, 08 April 2014 16:55

Giant Easter Egg MediumThe Henry Bloom Noble Library’s is employing 'choc' tactics with a book-related Easter egg hunt. Hidden around the library are eggs containing authors’ names and book titles. Hunt them down, fill out an answer sheet and correct entries will be added to a draw to win a giant chocolate Easter egg.


The challenge is just one of a number of ‘Read All About It’ themed activities planned for April as part of the library’s support of Island of Culture 2014.


For children, on Wednesday April 16th there will be an Easter craft session from 3 to 4pm, when Easter card-making, ‘bouncing bunnies’ and Easter chicks are promised. Refreshments will be provided, tickets are free and can be collected in advance from the ground-floor counter.


Meanwhile, throughout the month there are displays of different styles of literature on each floor: Manx books and a local newspaper from the 1960s on the ground floor; journalism and writers highlighted on the first floor; quick-read books to encourage the reluctant reader on the second floor.

Refreshments will be served, tickets are free and can be collected from the ground-floor counter at the library.
