Out and about with Tommy the Tegu

Westminster Libraries were well-represented at Walterton & Elgin Community Homes’ annual Summer Festival on Sunday 19 July. Stef and Lucy, promoting libraries in general and the Summer Reading Challenge in particular, were joined by Kate who provided information on current health initiatives including Books on Prescription.

We were pleased to find that many of the children we met were already well aware of the Challenge, but this was a great opportunity to speak to parents directly about its positive impact, as well as all the prizes and free events the kids love so much.

Beautiful weather, ice-cream and lots of fun and games –  including our Record Breakers Treasure Hunt – made for a busy afternoon and we had over 160 visitors to the stall. The most unusual was definitely Tommy the Tegu, who made a beeline for us while on a walkabout from a mini-zoo attraction. He was quite taken with the Summer Reading Challenge events brochure.
