Schools and Charities making full use of Balham Library

Shortly after International Book Day, we visited Balham Library who had invited Chestnut Grove Primary School to a special film screening and talk by Book Aid International who are based in South London. We were blown away by the delightful and very thoughtful comments of the pupils - too many great answers to share in this report! http://www.wandsworth.gov.uk/libraries https://bookaid.org/ http://www.chestnutgrove.wandsworth.sch.uk/ #gettoknowyourlibrary @ChestnutGroveAc @Better_Balham library @wandsworthlibs
