The readers, writers, storytellers and book lovers amongst us, get ready - Thursday 7th March is World Book Day! In true celebration of the joy of books, this week's challenge is set by Guille- Allès Library (https://www.library.gg/), the only public library for Guernsey, and a hub for culture, learning and community life. Established in 1888 by founders Thomas Guille and Frederick Allès, they have been serving the island ever since, inviting visitors to open the door to their imagination and step into the world inside a book. This week we ignore all good advice, and judge a book by it's cover...let's have some fun! . Get creative with a cover! Choose a book, and find or create a background that completes the cover image. Use a person, animal, place or object to create your picture - does it suit the book or change the meaning entirely? There are several examples from the library team here to get you inspired...over to you, Challengers! .

Happy Friday and cheers!! My the Spell✨✨ magic self healing releasing burdens and will glimmer hope, love and inspiration I am part of a company called On Purpose - a community that puts purpose before profit within organisations. I would like to create a Weekly Challenge for a broader audience to also engage on the 'Living On Purpose' challenge. I would like to encourage people to write down on a sheet of paper what is their purpose in life/ or what is the purpose their are currently engaged with. I feel that when we write it down and show to the world we can move forward with more confidence and support as we realize we are not alone; we are part of a community that also wants to bring positive change to the world.
