On Thursdays we run two sessions of Sing Song Time, 10 - 10:30am and 10:45 to 11:15am. Sing Song Time is a first library activity for under threes and their carers.  The aim is for the children to join in the singing, as well as have fun. We sing familiar songs every week and the children are encouraged to join in both the music and movement, gradually building up their confidence.

On Tuesday we run Story / Song Time from 10:15 to 10:45am. We welcome toddlers and their carers into a warm, friendly group. We provide rhythm and rhyme making activities alongside both new and familiar songs, and an introduction into the world of exciting and boundless stories beyond home provision. 

Come and join us for some fun with your little ones !


The next meeting of the group will be on Friday the 6th of January at 3.30pm at the library, to discuss their next book "Diary of a Nobody" by George and Weedon Grossmith, over cake, tea & coffee. 

Additional group members are very welcome, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call in, if you would like to join the group or have any queries you would like answered. 

Books will be provided by the library and are ready for collection.
