The 3rd Winnersh Rainbows visited Winnersh Library on Thursday March 9th.

The Rainbows learned about how the library is organised, what books they can take out, how to look after books and heard some fun stories.

There was even time to browse the  books and read the story of Troll and the Oliver by Adam Stower. The Rainbows then drew their own version of Troll from the story.troll
