Young visitors to Market Rasen Library are able to get hands on with creatures great and small as part of a summer-long celebration of reading.
With the help of expert handlers from educational experience company Lion Learners, kids aged from five to 11 will meet a snake, lizard, cockroach and rabbit.
They’ll also take part in animal-themed activities, including crafts and storytime sessions.
The events encourage youngsters to take part in the Summer Reading Challenge’s ‘Mythical Maze’ theme.
Lynne Cook from the library service said: “Kids love getting hands on with animals – it sparks their imagination and curiosity. And that’s what reading is all about too.”
The Meet the Animals event takes place at Market Rasen Library on Thursday July 31 from 10.30am to 11.30am.
Tickets cost £2 from the library or call 01522 782010.
