Ghostly going on at reading challenge

Youngsters from across Milngavie and Bearsden had a ghostly, creepy time at Westerton Library as part of their Summer Reading Challenge.

The theme this year is ‘Creepy House’ and some of the children joined Westerton Library cultural assistant Jackie Baird last Thursday to make their very own haunted houses.

The challenge for the younsters has been to read six books on a ghostly theme.

It is open to children aged 4 to 11 years.

All those who complete the challenge of reading six books will be invited to put their name forward to be placed in a prize draw to attend the ‘Creepy House Extravaganza’ at Bishopbriggs Library on Saturday, August 31.

Chair of East Dunbartonshire Leisure and Culture Trust, Councillor Stewart MacDonald said, “The summer reading challenge is always popular with children in East Dunbartonshire and is supported throughout the summer with a wide range of free activities held in all our libraries. This year, these will include ghostly console games, Wee Monsters and Creepy House Workshop.”
