Batman returns… to the library

Once upon a time there was a baby bat, books and some very eager school kids…

This week, Mt Gravatt’s Library storytime received some special guests just in time for Halloween–three orphan baby bats from Bat Conservation and Rescue Queensland. At 11am Friday 30 October the kiddies from Yarranlea Primary School were treated to a storytime with a difference thanks to the volunteer team from Bat Conservation and Rescue Queensland.

The bat rescuers joined the students at this month’s storytime to give an educational talk and spread the word about bat conservation in South-East Queensland. The kids were introduced to three orphan babies bats as young as three weeks old and one who had only been rescued that morning.

Mt Gravatt library’s storytime began earlier this year and has become a huge hit with the local school students who now regularly visit their local library.

The Mt Gravatt campus and the Yarranlea Primary School share a campus which is why this fantastic community initiative began.
