Baby bounce and rhyme and storytime sessions

Baby bounce and rhyme and storytime sessions

If you have a baby, you can come to our baby bounce and rhyme sessions.

Our libraries share nursery rhymes and songs with families and babies for around 30 minutes every week. We also run storytime sessions for pre-school children.

What we do

One of our librarians leads the singing. Some libraries have rattles and musical instruments for the children. It’s free to join and you don’t have to book a place.

We welcome older siblings too.

How bounce and rhyme helps

Singing rhymes with babies helps:

  • language development
  • bonding between parent or carer and child
  • children’s understanding of the world around them

For more information, and to join a baby bounce and rhyme session, contact your local library.

Storytime for pre-school children

Many of our libraries hold storytimes for pre-school children.

A library staff member or volunteer choose the stories and lead the sessions.

Sessions are usually 20 to 30 minutes long, and you don’t need to book a place. For more information, contact your local library.
