BABIES and tots were bitten by the bookbug as they embraced the magical world of storytelling at an East Renfrewshire library.

The event, led by organiser June Lamont, saw youngsters enjoy a fun-filled morning at Mearns Library, where reading, singing and dancing were all on offer.

It was one of a number of Bookbug sessions that are staged at various locations during term time, with youngsters in Barrhead, Busby, Clarkston, Eaglesham, Neilston and Thornliebank also able to join in the fun.
