The event is held annually and this year’s theme was celebration.

There were also special themed Bookbug sessions for youngsters, displays and mystery book bags for those looking for something different to read.
Those taking part included local children’s author Barbara Henderson who read from her books to Duncan Forbes Primary School pupils during an event at Culloden Library.
Crime writer Douglas Skelton visited Inverness Library which also staged a display to mark the 200th anniversary of the birth of Gaelic poet Margaret MacPherson.
Inverness Prison also hosted a themed display.
