We had a very festive prize-giving this evening, when we welcomed the winners of our Christmas decoration competition to the library to collect their prizes.

The fabulous Millie collected her special spooky prize earlier! Millie was the winner of the 'How Mummy pages in this Book' competition- where children were asked to guess the correct number of pages in a book disguised as a mummy. The correct answer was 201, Millie was one of a number of children who were only one digit out with their guess, and her name was pulled out of the witch's hat πŸ§›β€β™€οΈ. Lorna and Anne would like to wish all of our readers a very happy Halloween!πŸ‘»πŸŽƒ
