National Libraries Day takes place on Saturday the 9th of February this year, and it’s just been announced that school libraries around the country will be marking the event by attempting a Guinness World Record.
Parallel Universes, as the project has been called, will involve over 50 schools attempting to create a record for the world’s largest simultaneous story writing workshop. The children involved, all from school years 6 and 9, will try to finish a story begun by the author Matt Haig. I think it’s a great way to bring libraries into the spotlight at a fragile time.
