A bug’s life at Budleigh library

Budleigh Salterton Library was packed with children and parents for a special wildlife workshop.
Jessica Lavelle, of Zoolab, brought some creepy-crawly friends to the venue, in Station Road, for the latest summer reading challenge event.
She used a mouse, a tarantula, a giant snail, a snake, a cockroach and a tree frog to tell the children stories.
Youngsters were also given the opportunity to touch the mini-beasts.
Those parents brave enough were also given the chance to get up close to the creatures.
