Teddies picnic for library’s birthday

IF you go down to Hucknall Library next week, you’re sure of a big surprise.

For the historic venue on Market Place is holding a teddy bears’ picnic as part of ongoing celebrations to mark its 125th anniversary.

The event will be staged next Thursday (June 14) to mark the library’s regular ‘rock, rhythm and rhyme’ sessions for toddlers.

There will also be a visit from the Bookstart Bear, who will be encouraging youngsters to read.

Librarian Sharon Wells said: “It should be a fun session.”
