Gateshead Libraries Summer Reading Challenge Winner

21st September 2023

Congratulations to our very own Gateshead Libraries competition winner, Bea.  During the summer holidays, she completed the reading challenge, Ready, Set, Read at Crawcrook Library and is Gateshead’s overall prize draw winner.  Joanne from the library service wanted to make a surprise appearance for the presentation, so she popped into Oceania classroom early on Thursday morning and proceeded to set up a huge stack of books.  Of course, everyone put down their pencils and gazed on curiously, while the stack grew higher and higher.  We were all delighted when the competition winner was announced, and then a stunned Bea stepped forward to accept her amazing prize - her own height in books!
