Notts County Council vice-chair Carol Pepper gave a short speech before the children enjoyed a special celebration cake.

But it’s not just children who have been getting in on the fun. The Worksop Knit and Natter group, who meet regularly at the library, celebrated its first anniversary there.

And to get the place looking festive, staff from The Co-op donated an eight foot Christmas Tree to the Library.
