For primary-aged children and their families.

Grab a hot chocolate and a biscuit and snuggle up to listen to a good book read by one of our volunteers

Every Tuesday at 3.30pm

Bounce and Rhyme

You and your child can share the Bounce and Rhyme experience joining with others and reciting simple songs and nursery rhymes. It's a good way to meet people and a good opportunity for babies and toddlers to mix socially with children of their own age.

Babies and toddlers like short simple songs with repetition to help with the use of words and memory. As they grow older they can make their own rhythms with simple musical instruments and perform more complicated action songs.

Join in with our bounce and rhyme sessions at the library and after the session borrow a book.

We look forward to singing with you soon.
