The community run library in Donington hosted schoolchildren on Thursday who had dressed up for World Book Day and found their school closed because of the snow.

Some 12 children – most in fancy dress – were joined by nine adults for an impromptu craft session, in which children created a cover for their favourite book.

Ann Seymour, one of the library coordinators, said it’s likely the book covers will become part of the library’s display when the church holds its flower festival.

Parents Peter and Ross Lorimer asked if the High Street library could open specially after their daughter, Alice, had the idea.

Alice’s mum led the craft session.

District councillor Jane King said: “The Co-op were very nice as they donated biscuits and juices.”

The event raised £16 for the community library funds.

Coun King said the library is normally closed on a Thursday and it was great that it opened specially for the children who had dressed up and were looking forward to celebrating World Book Day at school.
