StoryTime gives parents a wonderful opportunity to introduce young children to the joy of reading. The sessions are 30 minutes and are usually developed around a story or theme.

Together with stories chosen especially for pre-schoolers, the sessions also include music, songs and rhymes. These sessions give children a fun and relaxed start to their reading development before school. 

After the session children have time to select their own picture books to borrow and enjoy with the family at home.  



Photographs or filming may not take place during library events. If a parent or carer wishes to photograph or film their own children after the event, they may. For privacy reasons, photographs or filming of staff, performers and other children may not take place unless you obtain prior express consent.
