Featured librarian: Diane Lee
Hi my names Diane and I live in a place just outside Belfast called Glengormley but I work in Grove Library in Belfast. I have a 17yr old grumpy teenager and a 12 yr old who loves reading, she especially enjoyed Harry Potter, Rick Riordan the Percy Jackson series, Cathy Cassidy and is now into teenage fiction.
I hope you have all nearly or finished your reading challenge. In Grove Library over half of our children have completed it.
It has been a really busy summer in Grove, we have had the Grove Summer Scheme in with us listening to stories and making circus themed crafts as well as our Circus Stars storytime and crafts sessions. The children have made clowns, circus trains with animals, circus tents with acrobats, clown hats and I think their favourite cup cakes decorated like clowns with an ice cream cone for a hat and sweets for the rest of the face.
At the beginning of the summer we had the author Colin Bateman in for an evening with adults, did you know he now writes children’s books which you might like to try?
I like the book “Angel Cakes” by Cathy Cassidy as that is where I got the recipe for the cup cakes we decorated and it is delicious.
This summer I have completed a few challenges myself which many of you would think nothing of but I’m a bit of a chicken when it comes to big dippers and heights. I went on Il Diablo ( a scary dipper although my daughter didn’t think so) in Port Aventura theme park in Salou when I was on holiday. At home I walked across the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge on the north coast of Northern Ireland (it’s near the Giant’s Causeway) check it out on the web you’ll be impressed. I was with myself, although I nearly didn’t want to come back, but I had to as it’s the only way off the island.
Love to hear from.
