# 290 Reopening for business

On Tuesday 30th October the small public library here in Berkeley closed its doors as a county council library to reopen them again yesterday under a new name and as a community project run by volunteers.

 For the past 6 days we've been scrapping and painting walls, labeling and cataloguing books and doing everything we can to make it look nice and welcoming. I'm doing my first 3-hour shift as a volunteer librarian on Friday but what I'm really excited about are the crafts sessions I'll be doing with the children.

How often do you visit your local library?

Do you have any tips or suggestions for fun activities for the children?
