Summer Reading Challenge 2015!
Come into the library now with your children aged 5 – 11 years and register them to join in with our The National Summer Reading Challenge Record Breakers. Every one of 6 books read earns your child a prize, culminating in a certificate and medal. It’s all FREE!
You can register anytime now and the challenge finishes on 5th September. Your child can choose any book (fiction and non-fiction, joke books, poetry, graphic novels, audio books, Wordwise books etc) to suit their age, stage and tastes so long as they enjoy it!
These are traditional and modern nursery rhymes and song sessions for 0 – 2 year olds and costs £1 minimum donation per child.
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: 1st, 15th & 29th August and 12th & 26th September 2015.
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 per child. It happens every week on Thursdays at 9.45 – 10.15am.
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.
