What's On

The library is a community space, not just somewhere to read books!

If you would like to set up a community group, please do get in touch. If you would like to hold profit-making activities as part of your business, you can find our rates for room hire here.

Rhyme Time

Tuesdays 9.30 & 10.50am

Thursdays 9.30am

50p per child  

 

Singing rhymes helps develop children's social and language skills in a fun way. Sessions are organised by our volunteers and involve a mixture of songs, rhymes and movement.  We mix traditional nursery rhymes with more modern songs you'll probably be familiar with.

 

Liz and Elaine run Rhyme Time on Tuesdays.  As these sessions are very busy we decided to add an extra one on Thursday morning at 9.30.  This is run by Alison.  She volunteered as she used to enjoy singing with the children when working at a nursery.
