Sounds like you've lined up a great selection of fun activities for children and families, Ben. I hope to see a busy library next week at the children's circulation desk. Come on in to join the fun and to check out some good books.

I just googled Origami Olympics. Last year I proposed that my department (Art/DT) run Origami Olympics during the schools annual International Week. I work in Kuala Lumpur and I thought it was a nice link between Int Week and the summer olympics. My students have been in training for months because you cannot expect to win gold if you do not practise. From an education point of view it helps students to learn visual interpretation.
