You’ve all heard the saying, “Never judge a book by it’s cover” well Ramsbottom Library, along with all Libraries in Bury put together a very clever idea using just some brown paper packing to combat this.
The idea? Bag-a-book, which is?
Take one book, identify it’s reader age, put it into a brown paper bag, and label it with the age. That’s it. Could contain Wizards, could contain Fairies, who knows.
That’s how great this idea is, it’s SO simple, yet ties in to mystery and mystique before you’ve even got the book home.
I hope all those children who took part in this gave the books a chance, World Book Day is a great time to remember your local libraries, and Ramsbottom Library is a great place full of books and souvenirs from around Ramsbottom.
You can find it on Carr Street, about 200 meters past the Urn and just past the Doctors.
