A teepee surprise at Winterthur Library

We were very surprised to see a life sized teepee in the children's section of Winterthur Library and the girls wasted no time in flinging off their trainers, grabbing a book and crawling inside. Where they stayed for at least an hour! With the table gone to make room, I had to settle myself on a tiny spongey cushion in the corner to read the paper.

The library gets the English newspaper The Times daily so it's my new 'treat' to sit and catch up with news and columns from my mother country on our weekly library trip. (You can also look at back copies of several weeks back)

The teepee will be the focus of a special event at the library between 10.15am and 11.45am on Saturday, 27th September when children between 5 and 10 years are encouraged to find out about the life of indians and make their own teepee from paper.
