Children at borough’s libraries get ready for 2011 with superheroes and New Year’s resolutions

Two of the borough’s libraries proved the best place for children to visit on Saturday as they made their own calendars and New Year resolutions.

At Bethnal Green Library in Cambridge Heath Road, groups were shown how to beat the adults, who will have forgotten their pledges to keep fit by January 2, at the resolutions game.

They committed their 2011 oaths to scrolls with paints and pens to serve as a reminder throughout the year.

Azim Ali, 10, shared the vows of many others in promising to get up earlier in the morning, to be good at school and not eat junk food so there could be lots of happy parents this year in Tower Hamlets.

Young visitors to the Whitechapel Idea Store in Whitechapel Road were also creating something they can treasure for the rest of the year.

Children invented their own fantastic superheroes that would give Spiderman a run for his money and then added them to their own 2011 calendars.
