Start something new in Lancashire's libraries

Lancashire residents are being encouraged to try a new hobby as part of the national Start Something campaign.

From today until 10th March, people will be able to find out more about a range of interests at their local library.

Tracing family history, eBooks and online music are some of the subjects people can explore at free sessions.

County Councillor David Smith, lead member for community services, said: "We're running a variety of events across the county to encourage people to try something different.

"People can find out more about where to search for their family history, or explore the different eBooks available.

"They can also get help with practical skills suc! h as ICT or writing a CV.

"There's something for everyone and all the events are free."
