Regular Events for Children

During the Spring Term…

waggleandhumWaggle & Hum

These are traditional and modern nursery rhymes and song sessions for 0 – 2 year olds and costs £1.20 minimum donation per child.
We use puppets and shaker instruments to create lots of fun. These sessions run every Tuesday and Thursday mornings at 11 until 11.30am and also on alternate Saturdays at 10.30 until 11am for Dads and their children (see below for dates). This activity continues all through the school holidays too.

Saturday Waggle and Hum

Now on alternate Saturdays at 10.30 until 11am

These Saturday Waggle and Hum sessions were created specially for dads to have some singing fun with their babies. Mums and other relatives are also welcome to come and join the fun. Cost: Minimum donation £1.20 per child.

The next Saturday sessions will take place on: 13th & 27th Feb and 12th & 26th March 2016.

Sing – a – StorySing-a-story logo

This session is for children who are a little too old for Waggle and Hum and not quite ready to sit still in a group situation to listen to a story from a picture book. It is similar to Waggle and Hum but has more of a story element to it. This costs £1.20 per child. It happens every week on Thursdays at 9.45 – 10.15am. However, it is cancelled on 4th Feb and 17th March 2016 due to annual leave.

Display board in Junior Library

Last year various child-orientated organisations asked if we could display their work and we were happy to provide this free service.  We had work from the Blue Sparrows art group, Virgo Fidelis Preparatory School, Cypress Primary School and James Dixon Primary School.  Each of them had a half-term to display examples of their art/projects. If you want to have a turn come and talk to Fiona Byers, children’s librarian.
