Storyteller Liz Weir will be in residence at Whitehead Library on Saturday morning (March 11) for a children’s workshop.

The event is aimed at seven to nine-year-olds and will be held from 10.30 am until 1.00 pm.

As well as a storytelling session, a workshop will help participants learn how to write and read their own stories.

The workshop is one of a number of events taking place in libraries during March in celebration of Creativity Month.

Helen Osborn, acting chief cxecutive of Libraries NI, said: “Libraries NI is pleased to support this year’s month-long celebration of creativity and the Creative Industries in Northern Ireland with a packed programme of events. I am excited to announce two writers-in-residence, one animator-in-residence and three storytellers-in-residence to facilitate Creativity Month events in libraries. I know that they will all share their knowledge and experience of writing, animation and storytelling, whilst promoting the technology and digital resources of libraries and the use of libraries as creative community spaces.”
