The next under-5s story times are on Friday 17th November and Tuesday 5th December 9.30-10.15am. The pattern is the first Tuesday and the third Friday of the month.
These sessions are popular with parents, carers and children, with music, singing and stories. Thanks to everyone who gives their time to plan and make them so successful. Everyone is welcome. Pay as you like. We're looking for more people who would like to help run these sessions, as they're so popular. Could you help? You wouldn't be on your own...
Bookstart Bear Club
Children from 3 - 5 years can have a Bookstart Bear Club passport. Each time they visit the library and take out some books they get a bearpaw stamp in their passport. After 6 visits they get a certificate. There are 10 certificates in total - which means 60 visits to the library!!
Joe has just received his gold certificate - which is the last one!!
The Beavers visit Rothley Library as party of their community badge award.
31 'eager Beavers' and their leaders visited the library on Monday evening 23rd October.
They learned about how the library works and how the children's section is arranged. They also did some art and craft activities (prepared by Nita, who also does the displays at the library). The theme they are looking at at the moment is 'Knights' so they had a knight's helmet mask to make and colour, coloured in a knight book mark and designed a shield, had ago a at creating some 'old fashioned writing and completed a maze puzzle. They finished off the session by listening to the story of 'Sir Scallywag and the Golden Underpants'. Thanks to those library team members who helped at the session.
