4:10pm Wednesday 8th January 2014 in Harwich and Manningtree News
LIBRARIES in Essex will benefit from almost £100,000 in a cash giveaway.
Libraries across the county have secured funding to develop a summer reading and arts programme for 2014 from the National Lottery.
The funding will see a variety of events and activities organised during the summer months.
Councillor John Jowers, cabinet member for libraries, said: “The additional funding will enable young people to express their reading through a range of art forms, learn new skills and to work with some high quality artists.”
