National Libraries Day 

It's National Libraries Day on 7th February-a time to celebrate Libraries and the vital role they play in the community. As part of the celebrations children were invited to create new book covers for their favourite books, the results are displayed in all of the Havering Public Libraries. Our children contributed to the display at Hilldene Library. If you can why not pop into the Library and take a look, the display will be in place for at least a month.
