Storytime brings the magic of reading to life, inspiring families to share stories and make visiting your local library a regular and long-lasting part of family life.

Bookstart Rhymetime: for 0-5 year olds

Friday 10am

Babies and children who discover the pleasure of hearing stories and rhymes have a flying start when it comes to learning to read by themselves. Rhymetime sessions involve a mix of songs, rhymes, rhythm and movement, while providing the opportunity to share games, books and toys. They are also a friendly, inclusive space for parents and carers to meet up, mingle and make new friends.
