Beyond the stacks of books visitors to Great Yarmouth library can enjoy a range of activities over half term.

Families looking for things to do on Tuesday can learn about herbs, including mint, lavender and rosemary, and how they can be used at home.

Those taking part can make a lavender bag and take home some cuttings to grow their own herbs.

The event runs from 10.30am to 12pm.

On Wednesday families can try some craft activities in Wicked Wands and Magic Masks, including free access to the Tolhouse Museum, 2pm to 4pm.

And next Friday people can gather for the Happy Smiles Club, 11am to 2pm, when there is an opportunity to learn about tooth brushing techniques and the impact of our diet on our teeth.

There will also be fun activities for children as well as goodies to take home and practical advice for the grown-ups. Call the library on 01493 844551.
