The Environment, sustainability, and climate change will be the themes of our activities for children this half-term. All our libraries will be reading Elmer and the Flood during Storytime, in which a brave Elmer must figure out a way to save a stranded young elephant – can Elmer save the day? Come and find out!
Let your child’s imagination run wild at our craft clubs and learn how to recycle unwanted/old materials into something new, or you can visit the Hive for a Sustainability Treasure Hunt and Sustainability Tour.
Half-term isn't the only time we offer activities. There is something for everyone, all-year round! Pop into your local library, meet and make friends at our many children’s groups which include: Bounce and Rhyme and Storytime for babies and little ones, to our LEGO Club, Code Club
