Cllr Sarah Ferriby, Bradford Council’s Executive Member for Healthy People and Places, said: “We’re egg-cited to be welcoming families to our libraries over the Easter School Holidays. We’ve organised a great range of free activities which are not only fun but also encourage the enjoyment of reading, which in turn provides many benefits to learning, development and creativity in children.

“Our libraries provide a wide range of resources and services which support people from across our local communities, and residents of all ages can sign up for free library membership at any time.”
