Cracking family fun at all our libraries this Easter

Free craft activities for children

Bedford Borough Libraries will be offering family fun craft activities during the Easter holidays, absolutely free!


As well as making Easter crowns and wreaths, children can get creative with a garden inspired theme to tie in with the Round and Round the Garden exhibition at The Higgins by making bug masks, insect fridge magnets, and flower bookmarks!


There's no need to book in advance, just turn up and join in! We'd love to see what children create in these sessions so do share your photos with us on Facebook and Twitter
