BOOK clubs for babies, toddlers and pre-school children are springing up across Gloucester.
The Bookstart Bear Clubs are running at libraries in Bishop's Cleeve, Churchdown, Gloucester, Hucclecote and Quedgeley.
Young visitors can collect a stamp at each visit to the club and after 10 visits they are given a certificate.
Councillor Mark Hawthorne, leader of Gloucestershire County Council, said: "I hope families with pre-school children sign up to this service through their library to help children learn to love books and ready from a young age."
Club members can take part in games and activities too.
