The 1st Alloway Guides had a sleepover at the library

May 12, 2017

Last Friday night the 1st Alloway Guides enjoyed a sleepover at Ayr’s Carnegie Library. Before it was time to get into their sleeping bags, the girls enjoyed a book treasure hunt, read all about the history of the library and researched their family tree. The girls had a great time and said it was a night they will never forget… lucky no one told them about our resident library ghost before the lights went out! 👻 😱
