JOSHUA Brennan, above, checked out more than books at Cowley Library on Wednesday.
The Oxford 12-year-old took part in a mini pond-dipping session organised by the Oxford Urban Wildlife Group (OUWG).
He said: “We learned loads about tadpoles and it was fun to be able to see them up close.”
Conservationists brought a range of pondlife for youngsters to learn about during a free drop-in session.
OUWG secretary Janet Keene, who helped organised the event, said: “They had a great time catching frog tadpoles, newt tadpoles, water beetles, water fleas, water boatmen, and looking at them with hand lenses and microscopes.
“We hope it was a very educational day for all.”
