Everythings coming together for our Game of Thrones Quiz tomorrow night #GoTQuiz #gameofthrones #libraries
On Friday night the Library was transformed into Westeros as we hosted our first Game of Thrones Quiz Night Twelve teams of lords and ladies battled it out for the Iron Throne through rounds covering different aspects of the Seven Kingdoms. Alliances were made and broken, Dornish wine was drunk, and much fun was had, and in the end we all bent the knee to House Baratheon, who emerged the winners The quiz repeats this coming Friday 24 May  there is space for ONE more team. First come first serve, so if youd like to take part, dont wait! Book your tickets on our website. #GoT #gameofthrones #quiz #libraries #guernsey
We are thrilled to have received a donation of new books to the Childrens Library from UK based charity worldwideaction. They do great work making a difference to the lives and education of children and young people, both in the UK and internationally. The founder, Graeme Howell, has a connection to Guernsey, having been born on the island, and is keen to support our new Childrens Library. We created a wish list of books we felt we needed, and he bought them on our behalf.We are immensely grateful to Worldwide Action. They do tremendous work all around the world, and its humbling that they thought of including us in their efforts.  Please visit www.worldwideaction.org to find out more about the amazing work this charity is doing, including building two new classrooms on the Island of Lombok, Indonesia to help replace those destroyed in the earthquakes last year.
