Every Monday

Pebbles Rhyme Time Time: 10:30 and 11:30

Pebble the penguin rhymetime sessions are aimed at babies and toddlers, aged under five, along with their mums, dads and carers. The events are based entirely on sharing nursery rhymes, action songs and percussion music. It is fun, interactive and noisy! Nursery rhymes are great for language development, they have a lot of rhythm which catch baby's attention, and repetition, which is good for speech development. It is also a nice way of introducing babies and toddlers to their local library! Rhymetimes are free and are a great opportunity for dads, mums, carers and children to make new friends in a relaxed setting.

No booking necessary. Tickets will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.

Every Wednesday

Pebbles Story Time Time: 10:30-11:00

Library storytimes are generally aimed at two to five year olds and provide a fun and enjoyable introduction to books and libraries for young children. Sharing books and stories with young children can help to build good language and listening skills and give them a head start when they begin school. Library storytimes can foster a life long love of reading and show children that it is a fun place to be.

No booking necessary. Tickets will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.
