A BOOKSHOP in Flintshire is offering free books to children during the coronavirus outbreak.

The Mold Bookshop, which is located on the High Street, took to social media on March 21, to inform the public of their new scheme which aims to allow children to continue to read during their time off school.

Owner Caroline Johnson posted: "Thank you to everyone for their support for us and other local businesses.

"However, I recognise that with many families out of work due to the virus or on low incomes there is no spare money for books for the children to read during the school closures.

"We have quite a lot of World Book Day books left which we are giving away free to groups or societies involved in helping vulnerable children.

"Please let us know what you would like and we will get them to you ASAP."
