Residents at the Hickathrift House care home decided to celebrate World Book Day 2024 by visiting the library.

Hickathrift House staff, dressed up in World Book Day costumes, also hosted a discussion with residents about their favourite books.

Residents got to chat about the books they love in their life, and got to be a part of the launch for the care home's monthly book trolley.

Amongst all the book-related chat, residents got to visit Wisbech Library and look at the book shelves in there.

Kat Colangelo, the Head of Activities at the home commented: “Our residents all love to read and to discuss their favourite books so World Book Day is a fantastic opportunity for us all to spend the day with our noses in our favourite books.

"We also had a great game of guessing the famous novel through images and short descriptions.”

Paula Colman, General Manager at the home, said: “It has been a brilliant day, and we have all enjoyed swapping our must-reads with our new book trolley and dressing up as our favourite characters.

"The residents love getting lost in a good book, so they very much enjoyed reading excerpts from their favourite novels and discussing what they love about them.

"There are so many wonderful books to discover, everyone enjoyed finding out about new titles to put on their reading lists from our local library.”
