Bookbug Picture Book Prize
507 children from 13 schools participated in the Prize either voting in libraries or via Scottish Book Trust. The winner announced in January was “Shark in the park on a windy day” by Nick Sharratt which was the title which received most votes in Aberdeen City Libraries.
A pop-up classroom area is being created in Central Library Mezzanine twice a week from 16th January for 10 weeks to accommodate 10 learners and a tutor for ESOL classes. Feedback from the tutor expresses thanks for creating an “effective learning space in the library, for my Syrian classes”. Library staff will be engaging with the learners to ensure ongoing support upon completion of the classes.
