Oban Library welcomed royalty when it got a visit from the Cowfoot Prince.

Usifa Jalloh, who was born in Sierra Leona, was special guest at the library’s international storytelling event last week.

Usifa, who has worked in arts education for 20 years and is also known as the Cowfoot Prince, entertained a crowd with his stories. He was also in Edinburgh and Helensburgh as part of the recent international storytelling festival.

Oban library supervisor Suzanne Nicholson said: ‘What a fantastic evening we had last week with Usifu. He was simply brilliant and everyone was extremely impressed!’
