Melanie Poppins at Hornby LibraryThe first Monday of the school holidays Hornby was inundated with  young visitors, eagerly awaiting the arrival of performer Melanie Poppins and her Winter Party show.

And they weren’t disappointed.

Resplendent in red party frock and sparkly shoes and accompanied by Harry Potter no less (her rabbit), Melanie entertained them all for an hour, with songs, storytelling and amazing magic tricks.

Judging by the huge smiles, bright eyes and many positive comments from other library users, this  event was a great success.

Melanie will be busy during the holidays visiting a number of our libraries as part of our school holiday programmes.

Visit your local library and check out the great resources we have to keep the kids entertained or go to our Kids and Teens pages for some great online resources.
