KIDS are in for a treat this Easter with a host of themed fun sessions.

Staff at Headland Library, in Middlegate, are doing all they can to keep youngsters busy during the Easter holidays.

They have organised four crafts sessions for the children’s two-week break from school.

The first will be held on Tuesday, April 2 from 11am.

The crafts session for youngsters between five and 10 years old has a hearts and flower garland theme.

Another fun crafts class is held a week later on Tuesday, April 9, also from 11am.

That class has a flowery lanterns theme and both crafts sessions have a limit of 10 youngsters taking part, so parents are urged to act fast and a book a spot for their children.

The library is also holding two storytelling sessions for children under five.

The first, where kids can enjoy the book Night, Light, Sleep Tight by Janet Bingham and Rosalind Beardshaw, will take place on Friday, April 5 at 2pm.

Pinkie Mouse, where are you?, by Allison Green and Deborah Allwright, will be the book of choice at another session on Friday, April 12, again starting at 2pm.

Booking isn’t required for the two storytelling sessions and parents can take their kids along on the day.

All of the sessions are free of charge and library staff are hoping for good turn-outs.

Josephine Bonner, library manager, said: “We held some crafts sessions last Easter and they were popular so we are hoping for the same this time.

“It gives the children something a little bit different to do during their holidays and we will make sure they have plenty of fun.”

Adults are also reminded of a weekly event held for them at the library.

Every Friday, visitors can enjoy a free cuppa while choosing their next read at the library.

A coffee morning is held from 10am-1pm and everyone is welcome.
