Mr Bean Entertainments hosted the balloon-modelling class at Chantry Library on Monday for 24 children and their parents.

A spokesman for the library said: “Everyone had lots of fun and the library was full of people enjoying themselves.”

Meanwhile, Ipswich Library is calling on unemployed people in the town to take advantage of a number of free sessions next month designed to boost a CV and help participants find work.

The library is teaming up with Realise Futures to deliver six ‘Launch Pad’ classes in the Enterprise Hub on the second floor over two weeks from March 7-23.
