Saturday saw around forty young children visit the library to celebrate Elmer the Elephant's 30th birthday.
They made some fantastic birthday cards, enjoyed a treasure hunt for Elmer's friends and listened to some Elmer stories.
Some of them were totally engrossed in reading and colouring for over an hour and parents were very complimentary about how much they'd enjoyed it.
It was well worth it to see the excitement and pleasure it gave the children who took part.
