Mayor marks National Libraries Day

Axminster’s Mayor, Councillor Andrew Moulding joins in the fun at the town’s library.

Axminster Library users joined together to take part in a packed day of activities to celebrate National Libraries Day.

Around 50 people turned out to take advantage of the ‘linger longer’ event and Duke of Edinburgh volunteer Livvy Proctor helped to make ‘I love libraries’ badges with the library’s younger visitors.

Axminster’s Mayor, Councillor Andrew Moulding, also joined in the fun with some teatime tales.

The day went well and encouraged six new members to join the library.
