YOUNGSTERS from two schools were enchanted when a children’s entertainer visited a library for a story-telling session.
Renowned North East actress Eileen Glenton entertained young children by treading to pupils at Blackhall Library in a fairy godmother-style costume.
Pupils from St Joseph’s and Blackhall Colliery primary schools were treated to the readings by the library.
Eileen, from Durham, is a leading lady with the Durham Musical Theatre Company and has appeared frequently on TV and in films.
As well as acting, Eileen is a talented director and ran her own costume hire business.
Carol Close, senior assistant at Blackhall Library, said:” The reading session went really well and the children thoroughly enjoyed it.
“Events like this show that we are still going strong. We try to be a leading light in the community and encourage children to visit the library.”
