FAMILIES are being invited to join in with a day of fun at Alcester Library to mark National Libraries Day on Saturday, February 8.

Children of all ages are invited to join in with a morning of story-based performance and activities at the library which start from 10.30am.

Alcester Library is also set to receive a visit from performance poet and comedian Paul Cookson for a morning of poetry and laughter.

The branch will also be offering members the opportunity to enter a free prize draw to win a book token.

Councillor Colin Hayfield, portfolio holder for customers at Warwickshire County Council, said: “National Libraries Day is a great opportunity to celebrate our libraries and discover the wide range of activities and services that we offer. If you haven’t yet joined membership is free and we welcome our existing and new members.”
