It was a pleasure to be able to call in at the Friends of Streetly Library Annual General Meeting. The Friends are a great group of enthusiastic and committed volunteers who do terrific work to support our local community library.

I was interested to hear more about some of the events being organised at the library, including this year’s Summer Reading Challenge. The Summer Reading Challenge encourages children aged 4 to 11 to read six library books during the long summer holiday this year’s theme is Space Chase, an out-of-this-world adventure inspired by the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing. I would encourage everyone to take part in this year’s challenge!
