Pre-School Activities

COVID-19:  All our activities for pre-schoolies – Storytime, Poppets and Rhymetime – are suspended until further notice.


Visiting the library and a love of books and reading can be encouraged from a very early age.  We love seeing very young children enjoying the books, crayons and puzzles in the library, and we never say “Shush!”.

We have a great selection of colourful board books and picture books for the very young and our volunteers offer various activities to make early-years visits to the library fun.


Back by popular demand, our new group for 2 to 3 year-olds on Thursday afternoons is a great chance for little ones to hear stories read to them by adults, and to share their favourite tales.  Just come along – there’s no need to book.
