We want to decorate our library windows with Posters of Hope and we need your help. We have created a number of colouring in sheets which you can download and colour at home. Colour them in with the children, let the children colour them in on their own or why not show your artistic skills to the world. It is no coincidence that the main theme or word for the colouring is HOPE.
Once the sheets have been coloured in please can you return to the collection box at the library door whilst going for Book and Collect or whilst walking past. Library staff will then create windows displays using the colourful Posters of Hope for everyone to see. We hope that this will then encourage people in their local community by creating a graphic of hope, life and colour.
