Above, before the party starts. The long tea table is set with vintage tablecloths and flowers in old teapots, and strewn with Alice in Wonderland quotes. (Party design by Rachel Basham.) Community groups are setting up tables around the edges of the room showing their support for Chagford Library.

Above, just some of the many cakes, cookies, tarts and scones donated by bakers in our community, served on vintage china.


Above, top row: The door to the library. Andy Letcher playing bagpipes while the Dormouse heads for the library followed by three small girls all dressed as Alice.

Middle row: Chagword (Dartmoor’s Literary Festival) and the Chagford Swimming Pool are among the groups and organisations gathered to show support for the library.

Bottom row: Photos from the Extreme Reading Photo Competition (co-sponsored by The Mess Youth Centre); and a story about the importance of libraries contributed by storyteller Dan Worsley (with space on the board around it for people to add their own stories).

More photos to come.
