These are traditional and modern nursery rhymes and song sessions for 0 – 2 year olds and costs £1 minimum donation per child.
This session is for pre-school children aged approximately 2 – 4 years old. If your child is confidently toddling (approx. 18 months) and is able to sit a listen to a short story with parental help you are welcome to come along.
Now on alternate Saturdays at 10.30 until 11am
These Saturday Waggle and Hum sessions were created specially for working 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 per child.
The next Saturday sessions will take place on: 6th June 4th & 18th July 2015.(N.B. 20th June session will not take place due to annual leave; we apologise for the inconvenience.)
There will be an additional Saturday Waggle and Hum for all the family on 11th July from 10.30am but in Crystal Palace Food Market down Haynes Lane.
This session is for children who are a little too old for Waggle and Hum and not quite ready for Bookbug Club. It is similar to Waggle and Hum but has more of a story element to it. This costs £1 per child. It happens every week on Thursdays at 9.45 – 10.15am.(N.B. 18th and 25th June sessions will not take place due to annual leave; we apologise for the inconvenience.)
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.
As of 13th April 2015 our new opening hours are as follows:
1pm – 5pm
10am – 1pm &
2pm – 7pm
Wednesday – Closed
9.30am – 1pm &
2pm – 7pm
Friday – Closed
9am – 5pm
The staff at UNJL hope to be able to increase these opening hours in the future. However, this is dependant on increasing the staff hours and at this time it is unclear whether this additional cost can be covered by the budget. We thank you for your continued support.
