Youngsters can enjoy a storytimes with a difference at Grantown Library over the coming few months.

Starting tomorrow (Wednesday) High Life Highland countryside ranger Saranne Bish will be at the library in the Court House in The Square for a special storytime between 4pm and 5pm.

Sat around by the fire, the first book is Stick Man written by former Children's Laureate Julia Donaldson.

For children aged between three and seven years old, the free events continue on February 16 with tales of spiders and on March 16 with the stars and the moon as the theme.

Ranger Saranne said: “Being outdoors is so good for us so encouraging the wee ones through stories and play in our glorious natural world is a no-brainer.

“Even though its winter there is still loads to see and hear if you take the time to stop and absorb what can be found on our doorstep."

Grantown Library is also once again welcoming youngsters for Bookbug sessions held every Monday between 11am and 11.30am.

Whilst Countryside Ranger events are free, the service relies on donations to help protect wildlife in the region.
