Local children's author, Steve Cole, held his young audience in delighted raptures during his talk at the Community Library on Tuesday afternoon, 16th July.
Despite the stifling heat and the potential distractions of school sports days, the children's area of the library was full of enthusiastic youngsters, keen to hear how Steve comes up with his zany and creative ideas, and his fascination with super-heroes.
The presentation was also an opportunity to launch the Summer Reading Challenge, which takes place every year during the summer holidays and invites children to read six library books of their choice, collect stickers and gain other rewards along the way — all FREE.
