Our WBN event is on Monday 23rd April, from 17.00-20.00. Calne Wordfest and Calne Library are collaborating and hosting together. It’s open to the public, although the library will be closed for general library use from 19.00. We will be promoting local book groups, writers groups and local authors. There’ll be a poetry session and also a Shared Reading www.regionofreaders.org session for people to participate in or just observe. It’s aimed at adults, although it’s not age restricted. No charge or tickets, just turn up on the night. There’ll be word games available (Bananagrams, Scrabble etc) and the opportunity to make a reading recommendation and add a leaf to the reading tree! Better still if they can find the book in the library to hand to a borrower! Visitors will be encouraged to join the library if they’re not already members. We’ll also be promoting book prizes with displays of library books for guests to borrow.

Hopefully (licence pending!), there’ll also be live music and a small bar. And of course we will be handing out the free books!!

We’ll be promoting via Twitter @WiltsLibraries and @calnewordfest as well as local posters. And our banners!!
