|Waggle & Hum
These are traditional and modern nursery rhymes & song sessions for 0-2 year olds and costs £1 minimum donation per child. We use puppets and toy rhythm instruments to create lots of fun. These sessions run every Thursday morning at 9.30am and 11.00am and also on every Tuesday afternoon at 2.15pm. This activity continues all through the school holidays.
Our Thursday morning sessions became so popular we now have two so please limit your attendance to just one session on Thursdays.
Saturday Waggle and Hum session for dads (although mums and other relatives are also welcome) is proving to be very popular. It starts at 10.30am once every 4 weeks.
This club is aimed at pre-school children from about 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. Bookbug Club takes place every Thursday afternoon from 2.15pm to 2.45pm, even during the school holidays. Minimum donation £1 per child (or you may donate more). We will sing some songs, dance some circle dances like the Hokey Cokey and listen to a short story. At the end we will share books that parents have been reading to their children during the previous week.
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.
We are offering this again so if you would like to have a display please talk to Fiona in the Junior Library. It would be lovely to have other schools (including nurseries and secondary) and clubs represented, e.g. music and drama groups, sports clubs, guiding and scouts packs, etc.
Due to the reduction in
our Library Budget and
the loss of five members
of staff we regret to announce that from Monday 29th April 2013 the Library opening hours will be as listed below.
Monday – Closed
10am – 1pm &
2pm – 7pm
Wednesday – Closed
9am – 1pm &
2pm – 7pm
Friday – Closed
9am – 5pm
The staff at UNJL hope to be able
to increase these opening hours in the near 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.
