THE magical world of Alice in Wonderland was brought back to life at two Halton libraries.

Young people dressed up as some of the characters as they read her stories.

The event was held to mark the 150th anniversary of the Lewis Carroll classic.

Teenage volunteers organised the fun-filled activities with crafts and games at Widnes and Halton Lea libraries.

Lewis Carroll, whose real name was Charles Lutwidge Dodgso, was famously born in Daresbury.

The teenage volunteers belong to two groups which welcome new members.

The Widnes Library group meets every Wednesday from 5pm to 6pm.
