Alvechurch Library is hosting Halloween-themed Baby Bounce and Rhyme storytimes throughout half-term week. They are also taking part in the Scarecrow festival throughout half-term, and will have a full size scarecrow in the library window, which is part of a trail through the village.

Wythall Library is hosting Halloween themed Baby Bounce plus drop in craft activities all week.

Worcestershire County Councillor Matt Dormer said: ”Our libraries are once again opening their doors with lots of activities to keep children entertained during the half term break.

“We know how much our customers missed being able to take advantage of library activities during the pandemic, so I would encourage anyone looking for something creative to do this half term, to see what your local library is offering.”

Families can also find spooky stories in the free e-book service Borrowbox and the latest Halloween editions of children’s magazines like National Geographic Kids, Little Kids MiniMag and Storytime.
