Writer and playwright, Jayne Williams, challenges you to create a story
Watch and listen as Jayne retells her story of The Night the Books Came to Life
Then why not have a go at writing your own story?
Ready to create your own story?
You could write about books coming to life, like Jayne, or maybe it is the characters in the books that come to life and cause chaos amongst the shelves?
Your story could be based on true facts about your library or you might want to let us know all about your favourite library?
Get writing! We'd love to read the stories you create.
Parents and carers: If your child would like to share their stories inspired by The Night the Books Came to Life you can send via social media @NottsLibraries on Twitter and Facebook or email firstname.lastname@example.org
