Get involved in National Libraries DayBy Jennie Slevin

Celebrate National Libraries Day by getting involved in one of the events in libraries across Bracknell Forest.
Three libraries across the borough will be holding special events on Saturday to encourage people to use their library.
Binfield Library, in Benetfeld Road, will be celebrating the special day with a Chinese twist, in honour of the start of the Year of the Snake.
Children will create sock puppets and fans while learning all about Chinese culture during the workshop which will run from 10.30am to 3pm.
There will also be a bounce and rhyme session for younger children.
The newly revamped Bracknell Central Library, in Town Square, will be holding a sing-a-long morning for young children from 11am and Ascot Heath Library, in Fernbank Road, will be hosting a coffee morning on the day.
All libraries throughout the borough will also be hiring out DVDs for just £1 instead of the usual price of £2.15.
Councillor Iain McCracken, executive member for culture, corporate services and public protection, said: “National Libraries Day is a UK-wide event to celebrate the important role libraries play in our communities.
“I’m delighted that our Bracknell Forest libraries are involved and I hope the our residents make the most of the activities on offer on the day and throughout the year.”
