Bega Library celebrated Law Week in a unique way on Thursday with the visit of Police Officer Karen Nelligan from Bega Police, accompanied by the newly appointed PCYC Officer Sarah Bancroft.
Both officers read books to the pre-schoolers, including “Pig the Fibber” by Aaron Blabey and “Tell the Truth” by Kate Tym.
Information officer, Anne Moore said the children were a little wary at first but “warmed” to the officers who were in full uniform.
“There was lots of colouring and even stickers to keep as mementos of the visit,” she said.
“The children were all encouraged to say hello or wave to the officers if they see them when they are out and about.”
