Story and rhyme times

It’s never too early to start sharing stories and rhymes with your baby or toddler.

It's fun and there are lots of added benefits:

  • your baby or toddler will develop an early love of language
  • your child will develop listening skills
  • it will lay a firm foundation for learning to read
  • it will inspire your child's imagination

Library story and rhyme times are an ideal opportunity to enjoy stories, rhymes and songs with other children, parents and carers.

As well as being a fun way for your child to mix socially with other children, it will encourage a lifelong love of books from an early age with a mix of old and new favourites.

Story and rhyme sessions for under-5s are held in many of our libraries. For a full list, see our regular events for children.
