What the Dickens? – It’s movie night at the library

Children were given a festive treat when staff at Chipping Norton Library turned the venue into a pop-up cinema.

Around 20 youngsters and their families dropped in to watch A Muppet Christmas Carol on a projector screen as part of wider yuletide celebrations taking place in Chippy on Friday evening (2 December).

The festive flick, starring Michael Caine alongside a cast of Jim Henson’s famous creations, proved a hit with young and old alike.

Putting library at "heart of the community"

Library Manager Sally-Ann Moore said: “We really want to bring the library into the heart of the community, and what better way to do that than to take part in an event like this.

"It’s great to do things like this to attract new people who haven’t been before and who will hopefully come again as a result.”

She added: “The adults enjoyed it as much as the children. It’s a great film with some brilliant Christmas songs so we were pleased we chose it.”
