YOUNGSTERS enjoyed Easter arts and crafts at Inverclyde Libraries' school break 'crafternoons'.

Local youngsters have been glueing, cutting and colouring at libraries across the district as part of the popular holiday craft sessions.

Lorna Meechan, supervisor at Greenock Central Library, told the Tele that it was great to get the children into the libraries during the school holidays.

She said: "We've had about a dozen children in each week, it's good to get the kids and their families in during the holidays.

"We've got a bookbug challenge running to the end of the month and lots of the younger ones have signed up.

"They've been having a fabulous time.

"The kids love taking their crafts home and really enjoy it."

Many of the attendees at Greenock Central Library had taken part in previous crafternoon sessions, which the library service regularly holds during school breaks.

Jackie McManus said that she had been taking her children to the sessions for years.

She said: "I've been coming with my eight-year-old since she was wee.

"We got to the Bookbug sessions too.

"It's great to go along during the holidays."
