Meet Russ Bear, Chirk Library’s very own adventurous teddy bear.
Russ was found in a charity shop and has become a novel way for library assistants Carolyn and Liz to promote the library in the local community. Russ Bear has become a celebrity in his own right and recently turned the Chirk Christmas lights on!
Russ Bear has been a Facebook sensation with lots of people following his antics. He has his own library card, he took part in this year’s Summer Reading Challenge and he even took a trip on a zip wire ride at Chirk Carnival.
Did you know?
People visit public libraries more times the cinema, live gigs, the theatre or any of the top 10 UK tourist attractions put together – and most of them are aged 15-24! Carolyn and Liz from Chirk library are encouraging more people to use the library in Chirk and enjoy the benefits of the great services it provides.
We can’t wait to follow more of Russ the Bears antics next year!
