Toddler Time

Toddler Time takes place in the library every Monday afternoon in term time at 2.30pm until 2.55pm (designed to fit in with school pick up time). 

This is for children from about 18 months old to three years old. 

Bookstart Bear welcomes the children with his action song.  

Each week there are two or three stories from the library’s children's collection, interspersed with songs and rhymes linked to the different weekly themes,  e.g. counting, colours, on the farm, zoo animals, vehicles, dinosaurs.


Baby Rhyme Time

Baby Rhyme Time is held in the library  on Thursday mornings in term time between 10.30 and 11.00am. 

There is no restriction on age as such, but the target audience is                         0 - 18 months as the session focusses on singing and rhyme only.   

But we have found that when older children (i.e. 2 and 3 year olds) come, they enjoy joining in and are also more responsive and helpful to the session - so basically small toddlers are all welcome.
