Rumour has it that some long-gone creature has found its way back to the earth. The only thing we know is that it craves knowledge and companionship -especially from the youngsters.No way, it was spotted in our Library! Help!! What should we do?
To comfort this curious little creature and celebrate his new friendship with us, we named him Roary, as roar means “I love you” in dinosaur. Now we introduce a fun event series called Libroary Thursdays (pronunciation: lai-b-roa-ry) to you, with our beloved new friend Roary!
