Celebrate the Diamond Jubilee at Trafford's libraries
1:58pm Monday 28th May 2012 in News
TRAFFORD Council's libraries will be celebrating the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in a number of ways - and everyone is welcome to join in the fun.
Coppice Library, Coppice Avenue, Sale hosts a jubilee-themed storytime on Tuesday, May 29 at 2:15pm. The stories will be followed by a craft session where children will be making their own crowns. There will also be an afternoon tea party on June 1 from 2-4pm with refreshments and a quiz.
Trafford Local Studies, based in Sale Library, is running a Jubilee exhibition until June 23. The focus is on images and information relating to the Trafford area during the Queen’s 60 year reign.
Of special interest are original images relating to the Queen's visit to Stretford in 1977 as part of her Silver Jubilee celebrations. Longford Hall and Park was chosen as the venue for the first Royal Garden party to be held outside Buckingham Palace. The exhibition also features information about other Royal visits.
Timperley Library holds a Jubilee Picnic in the newly-replanted garden on Friday June 1 from 12noon–2pm. Light refreshments will be provided or you can bring your own picnic!
Come and have afternoon tea at Urmston Library on June 1 from 2pm onwards. A girl will be taking pride of place on the storytelling throne.
Woodsend Library is joining forces with Woodsend Interest Groups (WIGS) to host a coffee morning on May 31 between 10.30am-12.30pm. There will be refreshments including home made cakes and all proceeds will go to Royal Manchester Children's Hospital. Storytime in the afternoon, from 2-3pm, will be based around the Jubilee and children will be making crowns and red, white and blue rah rah shakers.
