Comics, space, science and much, much more - West Sussex ‘Geek Week’ is back with a big bang.

On this day with… eInformation

Taking place at Broadfield, Chichester, Crawley, Rustington, Shoreham and Storrington libraries.
Challenge – your choice…
Dare to try something different with a reading challenge! Read a book set in the future, revisit a book you loved as a child, or delve into a graphic novel - or try one of the other nine challenge suggestions.
All libraries will have bookmarks with the challenges and displays to help you choose.
Other events will include ‘Messy Science’ at East Grinstead and Haywards Heath, as well as eComic drop-ins at Burgess Hill and Crawley.
