The Youth Outreach Program started on March 10th and has been running on Saturdays, alternating between the West End and East End of the island.

At the West End, the Youth Services Department deliver library services at Sandys 360 from 10am to 12 noon and then at The Rubber Tree Market in Warwick from 2pm to 4pm. In the East End, they are at White's Southside from 10am to 12 noon and at the Olde Towne Market on Water Street in St. George's from 2pm to 4pm.

It will run until the end of May in the first instance, after which there will be an assessment of the program during the summer and it will resume again in the fall.

The public can go the Bermuda National Library website for details of the Outreach Program schedule.

Children's Reading Festival

Over 600 children attended the Children's Reading Festival this year. The day was filled with activities for children ranging from the very young to older youth. The Library mascot, Libro Lion, was accompanied by the community mascots Belco Bird, A.J. the Little Gombey, the Litter Critter, Keisha the Mermaid and the Cat in the Hat.

There were stories told, dancing, music, singing and a magic show to entertain the children. The children were able to try their hand at games and crafts. At the end of the day children walked out happy with library cards and books in hand.
