Fun half-term events for all at Ipswich Library

Ipswich County Library has organised several interesting events for all ages over October half-term week, including interactive music-making sessions and film screenings!

Full list of events:

Book launch with Tianna Okechukwu

Tianna Okechukwu, Suffolk's youngest author, will be coming in to launch her debut children's book Hamsters Don't Get Lost, They Go on Adventures on Saturday 23 October. The Mayor of Ipswich, Elizabeth Hughes, will also be attending this event.

About Hamsters Don’t Get Lost, They Go on Adventures:

Florence is a little girl who loves her cheeky pet hamster, Chewie. One very busy morning, Florence’s mother forgets his cage door open, and he escapes into the great outdoors. Chewie is no ordinary hamster - he dreams of adventures and faraway places, but most of all, he wants to become a bird watcher.

Tianna will also be visiting Chantry Library and Gainsborough Community Library throughout the week.
