If you had gone down to Corstorphine Library the other afternoon you’d have been in for a big surprise.
For 15 teddy bears were gathered there for the library’s teddy bear sleepover.
Children aged 2-5 brought along one of their favourite teddies for the event. They made name badges for their bear before singing some songs and rhymes to lull them off to sleep.
After tucking the bears into bed the kids then tiptoed off home to leave the bears for their sleepover.
But the mischievous bears didn’t stay in their beds for very long. As soon as the library lights went out the fun began.
From photocopying their faces to raiding the staff fridge for a midnight feast, the bears got up to all kinds of devilment.
Luckily a sneaky member of staff was lurking behind the bookcases with a camera to capture all the action.
Little Ted is on library duty – complete with his official badge and specs!
