Leeds West MP Rachel Reeves was brought to book – at a special library event.

The Big Read at Armley Library on Saturday followed a similar session in Bramley.

Children were entertained by story-tellers and were invited to dress up as their favourite literary character.

They also got the chance to design their own front cover.

After Saturday’s event, Ms Reeves wrote on Facebook: “Support our local libraries!”

The Big Read events are designed to encourage people to pick up a book.
