Press Release: Half-term fun at the Family Library

It may be the half-term holidays, but there is plenty going on at the Family Library.

Tuesday (February 9) will see Chinese New Year craft from 10.30am to midday, just £2 to take part. From 1.30pm to 4pm there is Super Hero Craft (£1), tying in with the library’s Random Acts of Kindness Super Hero theme.

Wednesday sees Jumping Super Heroes from 10.30am to midday (£2) and Chinese New Year Animation from 1.30pm to 3pm (free).

There’s more Chinese New Year craft on Thursday afternoon, from 1.30pm to 4pm. This session is free.

Friday sees another Super Hero Craft session from 1.30pm to 4pm (£1). You can also drop in during the week to make a Super Hero to display in the library.

Saturday sees the launch of a new twice-monthly venture in the Family Library, with Girl Gang. The weekend workshops are for girls aged eight and over – no boys allowed!

This first session, which will include ‘galentine’ crafts, runs from 1pm-2pm and costs £5 to take part.

Librarian-in-charge Mary Cousins said: ‘We’ve got such a lot going on at the Family Library this holiday, why not pop in?

‘We’re particularly excited about our new Girl Gang workshops and should add that boys are still more than welcome to the library when they’re on as there’s plenty for them to do too!’
