Chestnut Class went to Devizes library today! First, we learnt about library cards, how long you can borrow books for and what types of books the library has. Next, we had to go and find a book, and explain why we chose it. Some people liked the cover or illustrations and some liked the subject matter. Lastly, William read us some funny picture stories. Devizes library is a great place to visit on a rainy day!
