Staffordshire County Council is inviting the county’s residents and families to get into the Christmas spirit with your local library this December.
Library chief County Councillor Mike Lawrence said: “Local libraries regularly offer a wide range of free and inexpensive activities for youngsters and families all year round, but visiting the library in December adds a touch of seasonal magic for visitors of all ages.
“Staffordshire’s libraries are offering a host of seasonal fun activities in the run up to the big day, including, Christmas parties, fayres, craft events, carol concerts – and special festive sessions of pre-school favourites such as Boogie Babies, Story Times and Play and Stay that might receive a surprise visit from a very special person.
“With a vast array of books and e-books on festive arts and crafts, cooking and entertaining also available, when it comes to fun, learning experiences for Christmas, Staffordshire Libraries have it all wrapped up.”
