Derby-born local author Andrew Cope will officially open the new Castle Donington Community Library at 12 noon on Saturday, July 9. The writer of the successful Spy Dog, Spy Pup, Spy Cat and Raccoon Rampage children’s books will cut a ribbon to mark the formal launch of the library under its new volunteer managers and team.
There will be an opportunity to meet Andrew, who is also behind the Art of Brilliance positive psychology books for adults. A selection of his works will be available for loan.
There will also be a competition for children with the chance to win a number of books from the Spy Dog series.
The opening also coincides with the Big Friendly Read summer book challenge for children aged 3 – 12.
