Special events

Farnham Library Beano trail

  • Available from 14 July until 15 September.

Pick up an answer sheet at Farnham Library and follow the map to find the Beano characters hiding in Farnham shop windows. Hand in your completed form to Farnham Library to enter a prize draw for the chance to win a Beano bag.

All children must be accompanied by an adult and use the safety crossings at all times.

If you don't have time to take on the full Beano trail there is a character treasure hunt in the library to take part in with another chance to win a Beano bag!

Design your own library bag
