Weybridge Library Chatterbooks are back!

We had our second meeting of our new Chatterbooks Group at Weybridge Library in July. We had a fantastic discussion about 'To the edge of the World' by Julia Green which we all enjoyed. It is a fantastic adventure and helped us all think about being more confident when something is worrying us.

We started reading the 2018 Surrey Children's Book Awards winner 'Me and Mr P' by Maria Farrer during the meeting and we all enjoyed taking turns reading a page each. We took a break in August for the summer holidays and met again last Friday. We had a very lively discussion about 'Me and Mr P' concluding that if we couldn't have our own 'Mr P' to help us when we needed it then a giant polar bear beanbag would be the next best thing!

We had lots of fun filling in our 'What makes me feel good' sheets which we will be sending to Shepperton Chatterbooks Group as part of a project to get to know other Chatterbooks groups for National Libraries Week in October. 

At the end of the meeting we started 'The Girl with the Lost Smile' by Miranda Hart. We have two signed copies of the book at Weybridge Library. If you'd like to enter the draw to win a copy please drop into Weyridge Library before 19 October and complete the four challenges. All completed entires will be entered into the draw and you will receive a Girl with the Lost Smile button badge for entering.

Our next meeting is on Friday 19 October from 3.45 - 4.45 pm.

During September and October Chatterbooks at Haslemere Library are reading books with a "Health and Well-being Theme". 

We are also writing about our favourite books on "What makes me feel good" sheets that will form part of a display during National Libraries Week.
