A DALEK invasion is taking place at three libraries this week as part of the Space Hop Summer programme.

Dr Who's sworn enemy will be at Oldbury library tomorrow between 10.30am and 12.30pm, before moving on toCradley Heath Library from 2.30pm until 4.30pm.

The newly-refurbished Bleakhouse Library will play host to the alien on Thursday.

The onus will be on fun and games at Langley Library tomorrow where children can play computer strategy game Big Match Manager with West Bromwich Albion from 10.30am until 11.30am. with a member of the Baffies staff on hand to help out.

A Sandwell Council spokesman said it is not too late for children to join Space Hop – this year’s Summer Reading Challenge.

Staff at all the libraries are on hand to help children register and meet the challenge of reading six books during the holiday.

There are stickers and small prizes to collect along the way and everyone who completes the challenge will also receive a Space Hop certificate and medal.
