Children in Ipswich will get the chance to meet a bird of prey as Auckland the owl swoops in for a visit to Chantry Library next month.
Auckland, who comes from the Suffolk Owl Sanctuary, will be visiting on September 2, to celebrate the end of Suffolk Libraries summer reading challenge
This year the challenge has been based around the theme Wild World Heroes and is just part of an exciting schedule Suffolk Libraries have organised for the summer holidays.
From Monday, August 23 to Saturday, August 28, they will be running an online children's book festival featuring comedian and Sunday Times bestselling author Danny Wallace, who will be talking about his latest book 'The Day the Screens Went Blank'.
Also proudly appearing on the festival line-up will be Suffolk librarian Sophie Green who will be chatting online to children about her popular Potkin and Stubbs trilogy.
