A DAY of activities is being staged to celebrate Keighley Library.

A host of events will take place at the North Street building on Saturday, October 7, between 10am and 4pm.

Some of the Library Palooza sessions are being run on a drop-in basis, whilst at others places need to be booked.

A spokesperson says: "It’s Libraries Week and we want to celebrate all that Keighley Library has to offer.

"Not a member? Just come along and join in the fun, and let our friendly staff introduce you to our brilliant library!"

Sessions which require booking include Making Art with Books, at 10am or 1pm. It is open to all ages, but under-tens should be accompanied by an adult.

There will be a drama workshop, for children aged seven to 11, at 1pm, centring around the adventures of Hercules.

Also at 1pm, gel printing is on offer for visitors aged 14 upwards. The technique will be used to produce monoprints.

Singer-songwriter Roger Davies will be giving a free concert, starting at 2.15pm.

A spokesperson says: "Roger has established himself as an engaging songwriter through five solo albums, and concert performances around the country.

"After accompanying Fairport Convention as its special guest on a 30-date UK tour in 2016, Roger has enjoyed a succession of sell-out shows including an outstanding performance at the Great British Folk Festival."
