Library Launches Lib-Lympics

KSA has launched its own version of the Olympics that combines both mental and physical dexterity.

Students have the chance to compete in the library's Lib-lympics, completing five challenges to be awarded a medal. They have to read a work of fiction, a book about a sport and a book about a country. In addition competitors must take part in a book-stacking challenge and locate a book in the library, for which there are further prizes. Each participant receives an Olympics 'passport' to record their achievements.

Librarian Juliet Walsh organised the activity and said a number of students finished the challenge within days of it being launched.

She said: "This is a really special year for this country so we wanted to do something to celebrate. It's also meant that students are reading books they wouldn't normally choose.

"We've got an Olympics display in the library and lots of books on the Games."

Year 8 student Tommy Elliott (pictured) was among the first to finish the Lib-lympics.
