As part of Mayo County Library Children's Book Fesitval 2008 , 26 children attempted to make the biggest book in the county.
Ballyhaunis Children's Library has been a hive of activity recently where 26 children were busy attempting to make the biggest book in County Mayo. Standing 29 inches tall and 23 inches wide, the book is entitled "My Favourite Things". The children, whose ages range from 5 to 8 years old, brought in images and things that meant the most to them and used these to illustrate each page of the book. A conker, bottle tops, sweet papers, even a magnet were all carefully stuck onto the pages of the book. Great fun was had by everyone with shiny stars, glitter, glue and pictures getting everywhere. The Big Book is now on display in Ballyhaunis Library.
