Garston Fun Day

Frirends of Garston Library had a good day at the Garston Fun Day on Saturday (22nd).  The photographer (Paula) clearly had a less good day!

However here we are (Bill, Michelle and guest of honour the Lord Mayor) on our stall.

We raised our first lot of funds as well as talking to people about our children's writing competition and our literary evenings.

Our next meeting, before some of us take a break , is at 11 am on Saturday 6 July.

Come and meet us on Saturday.

Friends of Garston Library will be at the Garston Fun Day this Saturday (22nd).

We are running a stall where you'll be able to find out more about membership, about our summer writing competition and our autumn literary evenings.

Oh and we'll sell you some raffle tickets too!

The Fun Day is on Garston Park and runs from 11 till 2.

Writing competition launched

We are launching a competition for anyone aged 18 or under who loves books and loves to write.

What we are after is a book review.  This can be about any book.  The only condition is that the book has to exist in the Liverpool Libraries catalogue.  You don't need to borrow the book to review it, merely to check that it exists there.  You can check the catalogue in a library or at

The review needs to be at least 100 words but after that it can be as long as you think it needs to be.

Winning reviews will be published, and the winners will also be invited to take part in a special awards presentation.

You can send in your entry by:

* putting it in the Friends of Garston Libary box in the library
* giving it to us at the Friends of Garston Library stall at the Garston Fun Day (22 June- Garston Park)
* sending it to 75 Canterbury Street, L19 8LQ
* e mailing it to us (word attachment please) at

We need to know your name, contact details, age and school (if you are still at school)

The closing date is 31 July.

If you have any questions, please drop Paula Keaveney (Chair of Friends of Garston Library) an e mail at

We've written to local schools about this competition, but if you run a youth group and would like more details, please do let us know.
