The Sea Mills mini museum
The Sea Mills mini museum is re-opening with a new exhibition of postcards by children about coronavirus. Our very own Monty (year 5) came up with the name for the exhibition ‘Coronavirus Stinks!’. It’s an exhibition of postcards written and drawn by children and young people, both from the local area and around the UK. It’s allowed them to publicly share their feelings about the coronavirus crisis, lockdown, and the changes it has meant for them. The exhibition will be up until at least the end of September 2020.

Summer Reading Challenge will return for 2020 with ‘Silly Squad’ – a digital celebration of funny books and laughter, with artwork from award-winning children’s author and illustrator Laura Ellen Anderson!
The all-new digital Summer Reading Challenge will launch earlier than usual to keep children reading over the summer and support parents and carers – from June to September 2020.
A whole host of virtual (super silly!) events with guest celebrities and authors will take place on Friday 5 June to mark the launch of the new digital Challenge. The website will be free to access, featuring games, quizzes and digital and downloadable activities to encourage children and their families to take part in the Challenge at home. Although library buildings are currently closed, libraries will continue to deliver the Challenge through e-lending platforms and social media.
