Keen reader Gil Edmenson-Lovesey was the winner of a competition run by the Friends of Ely Library.

The youngster won a goody bag and voucher after completing a quiz and treasure hunt organised by the group.

As part of the treasure hunt, pictures of the front covers of books were displayed in shop windows around Ely.

Children were asked to purchase a quiz sheet from the library for £1, with all proceeds going to the Friends of Ely Library.

The winning prize was a goody bag including a £20 gift voucher that was sponsored by the friends.
