Patsy and Louise were dressed for the part too! And is that a festive fez on Steven's napper?
The room was full to bursting - around eighty people of all ages, from babies and toddlers to parents and grand parents. If you look carefully you'll see Louise jingling her bells to welcome Santa!
This wee lad looks happy to be there!
Here is Ruby with her grandad
And this little girl is engrossed in her present, looking for a Book Bug crayon to start colouring.
Below is Jocelyn with her baby Isobel, only two months in Orkney, all the way from South Carolina USA, and they've found their way to Book Bug. Jocelyn told me she used to read to her baby before she was even born!
There are many more photos from the day. You can find them on the Orkney Reader in Residence Facebook Page in an album called Christmas Book Bug 14 December 2012. And in a couple of days they will also be on the Orkney Library Facebook Page.
A Very Merry Christmas to you all!
