East Riding Libraries will be celebrating Shakespeare Week 2020 (16-22 March) with fun events for children and families.
Libraries across the East Riding will offer colouring masks of favourite Shakespeare characters, including Titania, Bottom, Puck and Trinculo, along with head bands and book marks.
Children will also be able to read the famous Witches' Spell from the opening of Macbeth and either fill a witch's hat with words to create their own shape poem, or use words and ideas from the Spell to create their own spell.
In addition, there will be a Wordsearch for Shakespearian words.
Councillor Shaun Horton, portfolio holder for tourism, culture and leisure, said: "Shakespeare Week is a national annual celebration giving primary school aged children opportunities for enriching and enjoyable early experiences of Shakespeare. I am delighted that East Riding Libraries are getting involved in the event, to give our younger readers an early chance to find out more about our greatest playwright in a fun way."
A full list of East Riding Libraries can be found at www.eastridinglibraries.co.uk
and it's free to join East Riding Libraries either online or in the library.
Each library always has an extensive range of reading about Shakespeare.
