Children’s Events

doc%20martins_jpgHalf term is rapidly approaching so I thought I would highlight some of the excellent activities and events that are happening in our libraries over the next few weeks.

Breeze International Youth festival
We are very pleased this year to be running the Breeze Bookfest as part of the festival. There are a number of fantastic events happening in our libraries from today until Saturday 1st June. There are far too many events to mention all of them but they include an opportunity to meet previous Leeds Book Award winners, Comic workshops, Tutti Frutti Theatre presenting Hue Boy and author events with Jon Mayhew, Steve Cole and Craig Bradley. There should be something for everyone as part of the festival so if you are a budding writer, illustrator or just love good books then there should be something for you. Look out for our Breezefest leaflets in the library or check out the full Breeze Youth festival programme at

Big Bookend
We are also happy to be supporting the Big Bookend again this year which has some excellent events for children on its programme. If you fancy yourself as a bit of a detective come along to Kate Pankhurst’s activity to solve the case of the ghostly guinea pig. Keen adventurers should enjoy Dan Ingram Brown’s workshop where explorers can create their own scrap map story island and challenge their characters with death defying quests and adventures. These events both take place over the weekend of the 8th and 9th June at Central Library. For further details of these events as well as lots more for children and families visit
