Libraries in Lichfield and Burntwood are hoping to attract little bookworms as part of a national initiative.

National Bookstart Week will see libraries inviting pre-school children to take part in activities and events from June 24 ro 29.

This year’s theme is fairy tales and local libraries are offering a range of storytelling and fun sessions, as well as offering free Bookstart packs.

Staffordshire County Councillor Mike Lawrence said: “It’s never too early to start sharing a love of books with your baby and help give them a flying start in life.”
