The Word Thing at Chester Library
Please take a free word every month- it’s yours to keep and use. All that we ask is that you show us what you do with it. It might inspire a poem, painting or song, a sculpture or even a play. Wherever ‘The Word Thing’ takes you, send us a postcard to display. Please pop in or contact the library to find out the word of the month and see what has been created.
