A packed programme of children’s activities have been lined up for half-term week across Hartlepool.
They include story and rhyme, sing and sign and springtime craft sessions.
The activities will take place at five libraries – Central, Headland, Owton Manor, Seaton Carew and Throston Grange from Monday to Friday.
All the events are free unless indicated otherwise, and children under eight must be accompanied by an adult.
Heather Bellwood, Hartlepool Libraries’ children’s and outreach librarian, said: “The weather can be quite cold and grim in February but these activities should certainly help to brighten up the holidays.”
