Gumley's Little Free Library
On Saturday 2 November, we held a Halloween Children’s Literary event. It was in support of our ‘Little Free Library’, which is situated in the decommissioned green BT telephone box in Gumley.
A story called ‘My Parents are Vampires’ was part read to the children, they were tasked with either finishing the story or drawing pictures of their Vampire parents. They all had lots of fun writing and drawing their stories.
We also painted some stones and made masks for the children to decorate in Halloween style. The Village Hall was still decorated in Halloween style from a previous party. Afterwards we went down to our ‘Little Free Library’ and gave it ‘A Ghoul Over’ inside and out, which the children loved.
‘Little Free Library’ promotes neighbourhood book exchanges in over 91 countries. It is a non-profit organisation based in Hudson, Wisconsin, U.S.A. and was founded in 2009 by the late Tod Bol, to inspire a love of reading, build community and spark creativity by fostering neighbourhood book exchanges around the world.
Gumley’s ‘Little Free Library’ charter number is 85313, on the ‘Little Free Library World Map’, which can be found on www.littlefreelibrary.org.
