SCI-FI fans young and old had an out of this world experience when they called in to Devizes Library on Saturday.

Mayor Nigel Carter and Wiltshire councillor Darren Henry were able to join in the fun as droids, daleks and a Back To The Future style car took over the usually sedate community hub and its concourse.

The event was organised by children's author David Johnson just days after the hub was officially declared open and it was a chance for people to see the revamped library which now includes a number of meeting areas and updated computer area.

One of the stars of the show was a DeLorean car while Daleks created by Mark Enright of Podpad studios were also in big demand as props for photographs.

Young writers Esme Machen, Riley Heyes and Lucy Burr were awarded prizes by Cllr Carter and Cllr Henry for their stories.

Mr Johnson said: "There was selection of sci fi related droids and vehicles along with people in costume.

"It was also a chance to award prizes to winners of a school writing competition and for virtual reality demonstrations and sessions on how to create digital art and short film making."

Wiltshire cabinet member for libraries said praised the Devizes event and others held across the county as part of Libraries Week. He said: "This was an excellent opportunity to celebrate what libraries mean to different people and enjoy a host of fun events taking place during the week."
