Article date - 13 February 2018

Library Lion will be roaring his way into local libraries, in an adaptation of the New York Times’ best-selling children’s book of the same name by Michelle Knudsen, presented by Untied Artists. Library Lion takes place at 11am and 2pm on:

· Wednesday 14 February, Moss Bank Library
· Thursday 15 February, Chester Lane Library

Councillor Sue Murphy, St Helens Council’s Cabinet Member for Leisure Services and Libraries, said:

“For many families, half-term week presents a puzzle; how to keep the children entertained. This family-friendly event – a beautiful story with songs, laughter and lots of joining in – is a perfect solution! Come along to Library Lion this week and discover all the excitement and wonder that our libraries have to offer.”

Each show lasts 50 minutes and is suitable for children aged 4-7 and their families.

Tickets cost £3 each or £8 for a family or group of four. Book online or call into any local library to purchase tickets.

Cultural Hubs, the nationally-renowned arts-in-libraries programme, is delivered by St Helens Council’s Library Service and funded by The National Lottery distributed through Arts Council England. The brand new programme is packed with events as exciting as they are diverse.
