Time Travel Adventures and a visit from Bookbug to celebrate Book Week Scotland

November 28, 2016

A huge thank you to everyone who came along to Symington Library’s Chatterbooks event for Book Week Scotland. Cakes were eaten, George’s Marvellous Medicine was sampled, Golden Books were found, Ears were pinned on BFG and prizes galore were won! But most importantly of all, hundreds of cuddles were given to and received by our special guest ‘Bookbug’ (who was extra cuddly after all they cakes he ate!).

Well done the Chatterbooks group for helping make the day such a great success!


We went time travelling with author and creative writing teacher Janis Mackay, when she visited Ayr’s Carnegie Library. Janis talked about her Time Travel Series of books and encouraged us all to get writing. The children (and adults) were enthralled listening to Janis and inspired to put pen to paper and start writing their own adventures.

Keeping with the time travel theme for our LEGO Lucky Bag Challenge, we got very imaginative and built some terrific time machines to zoom back through the years to Auld Ayr!

Read, Write, Count and National Libraries Day celebrations at Troon Library

February 12, 2016

We had great fun at Troon Library last Saturday celebrating National Libraries Day and the launch of Read, Write, Count. The children loved listening to the story ‘Jack and the baked beanstalk‘ before getting imaginative with their LEGO creations. Everyone managed to build something that related to the story, before the challenge of counting all the bricks they had used for their masterpieces. Well done everyone!

We have two LEGO Clubs running at Troon Library, 4 weekly on a Tuesday 3.15pm – 4.15pm and every Saturday 2-3pm.  If you would like to join please contact Troon Library on Tel: 01292 315352 or drop in to see us.

National Libraries Day and Read, Write, Count celebrations

February 7, 2016

We had a brilliant day on Saturday as we celebrated National Libraries Day with the launch of Read, Write, Count. We read ‘Shark in the Park on a windy day‘ and ‘Oi frog‘ and designed somewhere for our favourite character to sit – you’ll need to read ‘Oi frog’ to find out why. We counted how many bricks we used in our construction. Then we used our whiteboards to say why we loved libraries.

Thank you to everyone who came along!

Lego fun at Ayr’s Carnegie Library

January 27, 2016

We read David Walliams bear-illiantly funny adventure ‘The Bear who went Boo‘ at our Monday afternoon Lego club. We all agreed that Boo the cheeky polar bear cub was very mischievous, so we imagined where he would go and what he would do next when we designed our builds.

At our Monday evening club it was Lucky Bag Lego.  Everyone received a mixed bag of Lego and had to build something using only the bricks and pieces in their Lucky Bag. Wow, look at all their fantastic creations!
