Little pirates hunt for library treasure
YOUNGSTERS were yelling "yargh" and "shiver me timbers" when a library's pirate week set sail.
With parrots on their shoulders and eye-patches fixed firmly in place, the junior pirates swung their way into Bishop's Cleeve Library yesterday for a hearty day of fun.
The library in Tobyfield Road was launching a week of pirate-themed activities with a treasure hunt, hat making and artwork.
More than 50 children took part in the day, which included making a giant mosaic picture of Pirate Pete, which will hang on the wall throughout the week.

Principle library assistant Rosemary Hunt said: "The children had a great time, as did the staff.
"The library was chaotic with all the children running around, but it was a lot of fun.
"For the treasure hunt, they had to find Xs hidden around the library and then run back to the counter to get a chocolate as a prize.
"We decided on a pirate theme for the half-term activities because children love pirates and dressing up, so we knew they'd have a lot of fun."
Churchdown Library in Parton Road is also taking part in pirate week.
Activities lined up for the rest of the week include sea shanty singalongs, crafts, dressed up pirates and maybe even library staff walking the plank.
