They say never work with children and animals, but that is just what staff at Market Rasen Library did last week.
As part of this year’s Summer Reading Challenge, Mythical Maze, Rachael O’Neill of Lion Learners visited with a range of creatures for a meet the animals morning.
And more than 30 children went along to join in the fun and get up close to rabbits, guinea pigs, a bearded dragon, corn snake, giant African millipede and Jane the Chilean rose tarantula.
“It was really good,” said Ellie Steed, who is pictured above holding the tarantula.
“I hope we can do more things like this at the library.”
