Maths on Toast in Libraries  

Our free monthly library sessions offer families the opportunity to get creative with maths. With a new theme every month – from building a rocket to designing a piece of maths-inspired jewellery – these hands-on workshops show children and their adults a different way of viewing maths. Our aim is for everyone to leave feeling positive about maths, ready to take on their next challenge together, and aware of the maths in everyday life and the world around them. 

Our event at Pancras Square Library has been running on the second Saturday of every month for over 3 years. The drop-in event takes place between 2pm and 5pm and offers a wide range of creative maths activities for children aged 4-12 and their grown-ups. Supported by a small team of friendly volunteers, this increasingly popular workshop sees families making repeat visits and inviting friends to join in the maths fun! 

Keen to support more families, in 2019 we started running holiday workshops at Queens Crescent Library, Camden. And in 2020 we joined up with Ealing Road Library, Brent to offer our free monthly drop-in event on the third Saturday of every month.
