THERE was ex­cite­ment and thrills for chil­dren when Santa Claus made a visit to the Biloela li­brary this week.

He ar­rived with a dif­fer­ence – not on a sleigh led by Ru­dolph but rather by a Than­g­ool Ru­ral Fire Ser­vice truck with sirens and lights an­nounc­ing his ar­rival.

Santa stopped by to say hello to the chil­dren dur­ing a Sto­ry­time pro­gram.

There were keen-eyed young­sters who all looked for­ward to re­mind­ing Santa what they wanted for Christ­mas.

One young­ster happy to see Santa was seven-yearold Brock Thorpe.

“It’s great to see Santa and I like to read books all the time,” Brock said.

Brock said he was look­ing for­ward to go­ing away for a Christ­mas hol­i­day this fes­tive sea­son.

Sto­ry­time is run in the Biloela li­brary ev­ery Wed­nes­day at 10am dur­ing school terms and is an early lit­er­acy ini­tia­tive fo­cused on in­cor­po­rat­ing the ‘First 5 For­ever’ prin­ci­ples.

The pro­gram will recom­mence on Jan­uary 30, 10am.
