New! Village Trail! 

This fun village trail is for parents to share with children. The proceeds of the money raised (trail sheets cost £1) will go to supporting the work done by Vista. As the trail starts in the Library & finishes in the Vista shop the trail can only be done on these times and days in August   Weds 2.00- 5.00;    Thurs 10.00 – 12.00  & 2.00- 5.00;    Sat 10.00-1.00.The Library & Vista shop are the only places on the trail where anyone needs to go inside.    When complete the Vista shop will take your entry and it will be entered into a prize draw to take place at the end of August.  All the other clues can be solved by looking at buildings (sometimes look high) as you walk around the trail route. Bring a pen or pencil to write your answers down. If you are lost or unsure of the route you can check the small route plan  on the sheet. The quiz sheets can only be bought from Rothley Community Library, for £1 each. Have fun.

Bookstart Bear Club

Children from 3 - 5 years can have a Bookstart Bear Club passport.  Each time they visit the library and take out some books they get a bearpaw stamp in their passport.  After 6 visits they get a certificate.  There are 10 certificates in total - which means 60 visits to the library!!

Joe has just received his gold certificate - which is the last one!!

 Summer Reading Challenge

The 2017 Summer Reading Challenge theme has begun!

Children's reading can 'dip' during the long summer holidays. The annual Summer Reading Challenge helps get three quarters of a million children into libraries to keep up their reading skills and confidence.

Children from 3-12 years can join the 2017 Summer Reading Challenge in all Leicestershire Libraries from July 8th and will be able to help the animal detectives solve some puzzling mysteries. Children will collect stickers and incentives and be rewarded with a medal and certificate as they read 6 library books or library e-books and complete the challenge. There will also be craft events and special displays. 

Write a book review and put it on the evidence board to recommend your book to other children.

By the beginning of September 127 children had started the challenge, 20 have had their second visit and 84 have completed the challenge and got their certificate and medal.

Please bring your books back as soon as you can -certificates and medals only available now until Saturday 9th September.  Then this year's challenge is finally closed.

Well done to everyone who has taken part!
