Parents and littlies

Did you know that reading, playing and talking to your child every day from birth helps your child’s brain develop? Not only is it a fun way to spend time together, but it also helps to build strong foundations for future language and learning skills.

City libraries runs Baby rhyme time, Story time, Toddler time and Share, talk and read sessions for you and your little one to share books and to talk and play together. You don’t need to book; just come along!

All sessions run across our libraries are listed in our online events calendar.
