Youngsters urged to 'go batty' this half-term and Halloween at Bromsgrove Library

YOUNGSTERS are being urged to ‘go batty’ this half-term at Bromsgrove Library.

As well as spooky books there is a special Bat Attack activity sheet children can take on.

Youngsters will be able to colour in the pictures or add their own haunted twist to the Bat Attack and make a collage of the bats, cats and pumpkins.

Everyone who enters the Bat Attack competition will receive a prize. The overall winner will also get a special prize.

Families returning their entries to the library are reminded to put their contact details on the back of their Bat Attack creations.

The library has several steps for customers to follow when they are visiting, to keep the building Covid-secure.

Coun Lucy Hodgson, Cabinet Member for Communities, said: “This half-term families can enjoy themselves with Halloween themed activities.

“There’s plenty of spooky books to borrow at our libraries and lots of fun to be had a home with our Bat Attack activity sheet.

“It’s ideal creative entertainment for young families, particularly if the weather isn’t kind to us this holiday.”

People can download their Bat Attack Activity Sheet from the Worcestershire County Council Facebook page.

Please return your entries to Bromsgrove Library, whilst following all Coronavirus protocols.

Alternatively, send entries to Worcestershire County Council Facebook page or the Bromsgrove and Catshill Libraries Facebook page.

All entries will be put on display at the library and shared on Bromsgrove Library’s Facebook page and on Twitter.
