Ararat - Ararat children were able to get up close and personal with a host of furry friends at the Ararat Library.

Ranger Alisha Bunting from the Halls Gap Zoo visited the library and brought a number of animals for children to see, including favourite dingo Dewy as well as a surprise visit from Evan the Bilby.

Many of the children had never seen a Bilby and were thrilled to be able to get close to this beautiful Australian marsupial.
