Upcoming Events

All face to face events and activities in libraries are currently suspended but we are offering some online activities.


While there are no live activities being held at any of the libraries we are publishing online stories, songs, poems and signed stories and you can see many listed on our YouTube Channel

In order to comply with publisher permissions, some recordings are 'unlisted' and can't be found with a general search - but you can go directly to these unlisted stories using the links on the Storytimes, Rhymetimes and Children's Hours web page or browse our unlisted stories playlist.


We are running informal conversation classes online via Teams every Wednesday 2.30-3.30pm.

We chat about different topics each week and you are invited to join us. If you would like to know more or register for the session(s) please email us and we will send you details about the sessions and how you can join in.
