Library visitors were invited to get crafty as part of a project aimed to encourage people of all ages to join together to celebrate the Queen’s diamond jubilee.

A total of 20 county libraries are taking part in the Crown of Crowns competition during the school Easter holiday period.

The project is open to people under the age of 25 and those over 50.

To take part they have to decorate a diamond which will be displayed on a large canvas at selected libraries.

Crown of Crowns sessions have been taking place at libraries including those in Rushden, Higham Ferrers, Earls Barton, Irchester, Oundle, Raunds and Thrapston since April 2.

The final sessions are at Finedon Library today and then at Wellingborough Library from 2pm to 4pm tomorrow.
