BOOK lovers can enjoy a myriad of activities this Saturday (February 9) to mark National Libraries Day across Bracknell Forest.

In the newly-refurbished central library, in Town Square, musical youngsters will be able to enjoy a special singing and rhyming event between 11-11.45am.

Meanwhile, slithering snake sock puppets, mobiles and Chinese fans will be the big draw at Benetfeld Road's Binfield library.

Activities will run from 10.30am-3pm, including word searches, colouring, mazes and games, as well as a bounce and rhyme session for pre-school children at 11am followed by storytime for ages four to seven at 2.30pm.
