Something for the weekend - books and markets

Children's Story Time in Linen Hall Library

Linen Hall Library's monthly Children's Story Time is running this Saturday (21 August).

If you're 4-7 years old, then take your place on one of the small chairs in the children's book corner by 11am for half an hour of great story reading. Accompanying adults get a chance to wander around the fascinating library, recharge in the second floor café, or loiter and enjoy the stories.

Advance warning that September's Story Time will be on the 11th at the later time of 11.30am - part of the library's European Heritage Open Day events which include tours looking at its "colourful and tumultuous history" at 11am and 2pm.

As well as the well known St George's Market on Saturdays (9am - 3pm) and Sundays (10am - 4pm), you'll find a smaller farmers' market - the market is smaller, rather than the farmers! - in the car park of Belmont Tower (82 Belmont Church Road, BT4 3FG) from 9am on Saturday. Expect to find stalls offering fruit & veg, meat, fish, bread, cheese and olives.

The Belsonic music festival is running at the moment in Belfast's Custom House Square ... but there's nothing this weekend!

I have great fondness for the Linen Hall Library. What a grand old girl! And she has never forgotten her raison d'etre - foundation for advancement of learning.
