CBCA Book Week 2020



Cambridge Library invites you to create your own Curious Creature at home and deliver it to the library for a visit until the end of Children’s Book Week! We will then let them explore the library and share what they get up to on our social media pages.

  • Your creature can be made of anything (recycled stuff is excellent though)
  • It needs to be strong and stand up by itself (mischief might happen when they get together!)
  • Wear a tag at all times (so it won’t get lost and can come home after CBW)

 On the tag you will need to

  • put your creatures name and something about them (what do they like? what do they eat?)
  • your name
  • an email contact (so we can let you know when it is time to collect your adventurer)
  • A book you would like to read from the CBW list (available here(PDF, 278KB))

If you would like to order the book you have chosen (or any other books in our catalogue), you may request it here and we will add a mystery selection of brand new books to try! *Please fill in the form provided so we can find books that will be suit you!

Find out more about our Click & Collect service here.
