Archie Elliott, 11, and eight-year-old David Livsey, right, are pictured with Alice — also known as assistant librarian Verity Charlesworth — after winning the Summer Reading Scheme top prizes at the Family Library.
A final tea party was held to celebrate the end of this year’s reading scheme, which had a Wonderland theme. There were activities throughout the summer to celebrate the scheme and participants were asked to read at least six books. Archie and David each won a WH Smith voucher, box of practical jokes and a certificate.
Librarian in charge Mary Cousins said: ‘The party was a lovely end to this year’s scheme. Well done to everyone who took part.
‘We’re now back into the swing of things with our regular activities and workshops at the library.’
