Young readers bring Grove Library alive with animal art

Youngsters involved in a special art project at Grove Library received animal-themed books as prizes for taking part.

The children have produced artwork inspired by Oxfordshire Libraries’ Summer Reading Challenge – ‘Animal Agents’.

They have created a display of around 50 colourful pictures showing different animals disguised as secret agents with sunglasses and hats.

The Friends of Grove Library generously agreed to give every child who took part a prize of an animal story book - and these were awarded by the Friends group's former Chairman, Brian Edwards. Fifteen children (pictured) attended the ceremony, and enjoyed pointing out their animal agent on the display.

Any child who took part and did not collect their prize at the event on Saturday (2 September) can collect it when they're next in the library.
