Cobram Community Library was packed with children on Friday for an Easter-themed school holiday workshop.

Children of all ages gathered for storytime with Goulburn Valley Regional Library Corporation’s Emma Kennedy, who donned a set of bunny ears for the occasion.

The youngsters were then given pencils, textas, pipe cleaners, cotton buds and glue to construct their own bunny masks.

Some children opted to colour and construct three-dimensional egg baskets.

Among the crowd were Ned, 7, Milly, 5, and Ruby O’Kane, 3.

Mother Kaye O’Kane said the family always enjoyed visiting the library during school holidays.

‘‘They get a story read to them and then they do some craft,’’ she said. ‘‘They also get to catch up with their little friends, and they always make something to take home.’’

Librarian Judy Taylor said she was pleased with the number of children who attended the session.

‘‘Easter always seems to be popular,’’ she said.

‘‘I don’t know why — maybe it’s the cold weather that brings them.’’

Mrs Taylor said similar workshops were held monthly, with school holiday workshops especially popular.

‘‘It’s quite good fun and they enjoy it. They also get to enjoy the library experience.’’
