The library has teamed up with local schools, Ipswich Children’s Book Group, Let’s Talk Reading and Waterstone’s to bring this celebration of children’s books to Chantry from 13-19 November.

Authors James Campbell, Jane Elson, Steve Antony and Andy Briggs will be working in schools and taking part in Human Library and Book Jam events at the library.
