World Book Day “swaps” available at Frodsham Library

AFTER the huge success last year, Frodsham Library will again offer fancy dress swaps in good time for World Book Day in March and help save money and the environment.

Similar “swaps” will be available at many other libraries across the borough.
Cheshire West and Chester Council’s cabinet member for a Fairer Future, Cllr Lisa Denson said: “Seeing primary schoolchildren in book-related fancy dress costumes every World Book Day has become a common sight in March but, with ever-mounting financial and environmental pressures limiting new purchases makes more sense than ever.
“Many of our libraries will be accepting donations of fancy dress in February and before World Book Day itself. These will then be made available as soon as possible for anyone who would like a costume. What better way to share the fun, so you can play your part to save money and help with the climate emergency.”

All donated clothes must be clean, in good condition and suitable for primary school-aged children. Any items which are not claimed by World Book Day will be either donated to charity, kept for library use or sent for recycling.
Participating libraries are: Frodsham, Barnton, Blacon, Hope Farm, Lache, Little Sutton, Neston, Northwich, Sandiway, Winsford and Wharton.
For World Book Day itself, libraries will be exchanging the £1 book tokens that every school child will receive, for the special World Book Day books on Saturday March 9 from opening time until 12.30pm. Opening hours may vary slightly between branches.
