GLOUCESTERSHIRE'S libraries have lots of fun, free events planned to keep children busy over the half-term holiday.

Events are being held across the county including aliens and rockets crafts at Winchcombe library on Wednesday, February 19 from 11am to12pm.

Councillor Dorcas Binns, cabinet member with responsibility for libraries, said: “You can’t always rely on the weather in the February half-term, so why not take a look at what’s happening at your local library?

"There are free events and activities around the county to keep children busy – and they can borrow a book or two while they’re there.”
