Colleagues and visitors to Partick Library celebrated the most colourful day of the year on Saturday 25 May, wishing a happy 35th birthday to Elmer the patchwork elephant.

Young people enjoyed sharing stories and taking part in craft sessions, all themed around the much-loved children's character created by David McKee. Every year hundreds of schools, nurseries, libraries and bookshops all over the world hold special events to mark the day. Find out more at elmer.co.uk.
