IT was a fun crafts session with a difference.

Cute kids dressed up as their favourite story character to mark a fun-packed session organised to link in with World Book Day, which was held last week.

Youngsters aged five and under enjoy a read and rhyme session at Headland Library, in Middlegate, every Friday, where they take part in crafts activities and story telling.

And last week, library officers encouraged parents to get their kids dressed up for the occasion as they organised a themed session to celebrate World Book Day.

Schools, libraries and youth groups across the town held events and activities to get involved with the fun last week.

Margaret Dixon, Headland Library officer, said: “The kids are always brilliant fun during our weekly read and rhyme sessions.

“We thought it would be nice to do something a little bit different to celebrate World Book Day so we encouraged all of the children to get dressed up as their favourite character.

“The costumes were absolutely fantastic and the youngsters all really enjoyed the session, it was great fun.”

The weekly read and rhyme session takes place at the library every Friday from 2pm.

Places don’t need to be booked in advance and the session is free of charge.

Meanwhile, adults are reminded of the chance to enjoy a free cuppa while choosing their next read.

The library holds a coffee morning every Friday from 10am-1pm.
