Readers young and old paid a visit to Ottery’s new library, as the facility opened its doors for the first time.
The library moved from the Flexton to the former NatWest building in Silver Street and residents were invited to a special look round last week.
Possibly the youngest visitor at the drop in session was six month old Freya Monahan-Little, who was among many children enjoying looking at the new facilities.
Doors officially opened on Saturday with a range of activities including a book signing with local crime author Graham Hurley. Also on the day storyteller Ian Pearce entertained youngsters with readings of Winnie The Pooh in the new children’s library.
The premises will also be home to the town’s Tourist Information Centre and new public toilets.
