CELEBRATE National Libraries Week by taking part in activities across Halton on Wednesday from 2pm to 4pm.

During the free drop-in event, staff will also highlight the different ways the library can help people of all ages with their mental health and wellbeing.

The event will take place at both Widnes and Halton Lea libraries. Refreshments will be available.

Regular library activities will also be running as usual, including code clubs, Lego Club, Rhymetime, IT clinics and Saturday stories.

Cllr Phil Harris, Halton Council's portfolio holder for library services, said: "We have a great programme of activities during Libraries Week that we hope will bring the community together and find out more about  the ways we can help with your wellbeing.

"Everyone is welcome and the library is free to join."

New visitors can join the library any time during opening hours, or online by visiting halton.gov.uk/join.
