All are welcome. Thank you to everyone that joined us.
Thank you to everyoe that joined us to raise money for MacMillan. An evening of poetry and prose. Thank you to everyone who joined us. Thank you to everyone who joined us for our Food and Mood Coffee Morning. Sarah will run a workshop for children Year 2 to Year 4 in which they can develop their own pop up books and explore their creativity.
Meanwhile, younger children will work with Bridget and Carrie to explore the same story. With the help of their accompanying adults, children might create their own illustration through art and craft. Sarah will read the story to the whole group, using her clever props and her fantastic story voice.
To finish, there could be an Egg Hunt in the library!
Duck is very proud of her egg, but when will it hatch? Get ready for the big reveal at the end when we will read Emily Gravett's beautiful picture book, 'The Odd Egg' and meet Duck's baby! A storywalk is an opportunity to bring books out of the library, to promote reading and libraries in an alternative environment, to bring stories to life and allow families to combine reading with physical activitiy. Storywalks give children the opportunity to develop literacy skills while playing and ensure the whole family partakes in fun and healthy outdoor exercise.
It was great to see the library buzzing and so many people enjoying the library while at the same time raising awareness and money for the Mayor's charity appeal. Thank you to everyone who joined us, baked cakes and donated raffle prizes. Well done everyone! Some amazing poetry was read and all agreed it had been a lovely evening of friendship and laughter.
Thank you to eveyone who joined us! We look forward to our next one on18th June. Using relief print and polystyrene tiles, Lisa led a workshop inspired by the power of stories. This workshop was for families with children aged years and all found out how to create and draw the story of their own imaginary character or friend using print techniques.
Thank you to Lisa for a wonderful morning. All enjoyed a wonderful morning with Salma, thank you!
Actor Anthony Gonzalez, and his mother, living a dream with ‘Coco’
As part of our Children's Book Festival, all were invited to find out more about good books for babies. Reading to babies helps speech and language development. It helps your baby get a head start. The earlier babies experience picture books with you, the more they will enjoy reading and learning, and the better they will perform later at school. The workshop focused on 'The Gruffalo' and there was lots of active and practical learning during the session.
There was more information about lovely books available for under 5s and what makes a good book for this age group, when rapid development is taking place. Ideas and advice about books for babies and children is available through BookTrust:- www.

We heard a wide variety of poems from humorous to thought provoking. We even had a visit from Santa! Christabel Hopesmith joined us with her story of how she launched a poetry competition, from which she published a poetry book. The competition was to mark the 70th anniversary of the NHS and poems were invited on the subject of the 'human condition'.
We were lucky to have some contributors to the book at our readaround and copies were available to buy.

A guest joining us for the first time, Brenda, shared her own poem 'Memories of Christmas' and even handed out beautifully handwritten copies of it.
Thank you to everyone who joined us and for making it a lovely evening. What a talented group!

A huge thank you also to St Mary's Parish Church for being so helpful and accommodating in letting us use their facilities. Some guests read their own amazing poems which were emotive, beautiful, humorous and heartbreaking. Copies of some of these poems are now available to read in our dedicated book at Honley Library.

We look forward to our next one on 11th December. All welcome! The theme of our Children's Book Festival is 'Mischief'. Unless stated, all events are offered free but donations of 50p per child place go back into the pot towards resources and materials! Thank you to all our amazing sponsors, volunteers and Kirklees Library Service. Recycled materials were used and children got to take home a robot and made something extra to be part of the Honley Village Parade in November. Some amazing robots were created.
A huge thank you to Madam Mayor who was able to join us. Well done everyone - you were all winners! Characters were inspired by Dennis the Menace and Hilda Nobrow. Everyone made at least two faces to take home and they look delicious! Some fabulous creations made, well done everyone. Looks like everyone had great fun! Great job everyone!
They were able to make their own origami animal then illustrated mischievous adventures they got up to! Some children then read out their stories to the whole group. Fantastic workshop by Fiona, well done everyone! We had a wonderful array of poems; heartfelt, moving and thought-provoking from the talented people of Honley and beyond. Favourite poets included W. During the interval, guests were able to enjoy refreshments. All agreed it had been a lovely evening and are looking forward to our Autumn Readaround on September 11th. Bali is a well established, award winning author and a hugely popular voice within the young adult fiction market.
After retiring from a career in retailing, Peter turned his interests to local history, in particular that of Honley, to research and write about, but this was not his first foray into writing. A lifelong enthusiasm for Scottish Railways prompted him to find out more about the early companies in his native heath back in Victorian times and resulted in four substantial works published in the late s and early s.
However, it is for Honley's history that we know him best and over the years he has written and produced many pocket sized books about the village. He has also produced books from other authors, all for the benefit of Honley Civic Society. Along the way he has learned some of the skills in publishing and this enables each book to be an entirely Honley production!
Some of these books are available to read at Honley Library and can be found in the 'Local History' section.
