Our Monthly Themes

Open to all
- each month (when Covid-19 restrictions permit) we have a display on a different theme.


Wheathampstead Community Library is now open once again following the temporary closure caused by Covid-19.

We really look forward to seeing you again. Please drop in and make use of the library.  

Please note: Our Library remains one where masks are required. This is to safeguard our volunteers, the vast majority of whom are over 65 and sometimes living with vulnerable people, and to safeguard our customers.... in other words, putting meaning to the words 'the health and wellbeing of our staff and customers is paramount'.


Regular events at the library

These will re-start as soon as it's safe to do so - please watch this space

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 currently not running, but we plan to re-start it as soon as possible.  Please check this web page for updates.

When running, 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.
