Bookbug Sessions

In line with advice from the Scottish Government on reducing social contact in relation to the coronavirus, a decision has been made that from Monday 23 March all Libraries and community centres in West Lothian will close to the public. Therefore all Bookbug sessions in West Lothian libraries have been cancelled until further notice.

Five easy steps to starting Bookbug's Library Challenge:

  • Enrol your child at the library
  • Ask for your Bookbug Library Challenge Collector Card
  • Collect a stamp for each library visit
  • Exchange six stamps for a beautiful certificate
  • Get a new Collector card and start again
