Wool Children Make Documentary

As part of the Summer Reading Challenge and its associated activities, Wool Community Library organised two video workshops to help five young patrons of Wool Community Library  make their own short documentary film about the Challenge. The children, aged from 10 to 14, operated the camera, recorded the sound and interviewed each other, as well as other patrons to explain how the Challenge works and why they were taking part.

The Summer Reading Challenge is an annual scheme, run by libraries throughout Britain, to encourage children to explore the world of books during their summer holidays. All they need to do is sign up at their local library and read 6 library books of their choice  while they collect stickers and other rewards along the way. It's all completely free and it doesn't stop when Summer is over. Children can now keep track of their reading,find new books to red, take part in competitions and play games all year round on the Summer Reading Challenge website (http://www.summerreadingchallenge.org.uk)

This summer in Wool, 96 children signed up for the Challenge and ,by the end of September, 81 of these had completed it - an outstanding achievement for one of the smallest Community-Managed Libraries in Dorset, for which the volunteer lead  for the Friends of Wool Library for the Challenge, Chris Whish, can be rightly proud.

The childrens' film about the Challenge was edited for them by professional film-maker, Andrew Kerr who said, "All the children grasped the essentials very quickly. they understood the importance of steady camera work, of eliciting good information from the interviews and of complementing the facts with pictures. I was genuinely impressed"
