Half term activities at Liverpool libraries

There will be something for everyone at Liverpool libraries this half term.

From poetry to puppets, storytelling to spooks, get all the family involved with a range of week-long activities to suit all ages.

Cabinet Member for Culture and Leisure Councillor Wendy Simon said: “With something for everyone these activities are the perfect way to keep the kids entertained this half term and do something fun as a family.

“I would encourage as many people as possible to take advantage of at least one of these free activities and with the majority of events taking place in Liverpool’s brand new Central Library, it’s going to be great fun for children and grown-ups alike!”

On Wednesday 23rd October from 2pm Spellow Library on County Road will be hosting Mrs Stanley’s creative time, an hours activity for youngsters aged 5-8 around the themes of sport and games.

And on Saturday 26 October Discover in Central Library will hold a 2 hour poetry and fun session for all the family with award winning writer, ‘That Poetry Bloke’ Craig Bradley.
