Story Time

Our Friday sessions for babies and pre-schoolers are now scheduled for 9.30am – 10am, so that parents delivering older children to school can come straight on to Story Time with the younger ones. After the session your child can have fun choosing books to take home – they’re never too young for the library habit!

The last Story Time this term is Friday 20 December and first one next term will be on Friday 10 January.
