Bookbug Sessions

Bookbug sessions are fun, free and friendly events, open to babies, toddlers and their families to enjoy together.

Bookbug Banner

Bookbug encourages all parents and carers to enjoy books with their children from as young an age as possible, developing a lifelong love of books. Bookbug sessions are fun, free and friendly events, available in most libraries. Each session lasts around 30 minutes and includes songs, stories and rhymes.

  • Bookbug Timetable

The Bookbug timetable lists all the sessions, and there is no need to book except at Linlithgow Library due to space restrictions. Please phone Linlithgow Library on 01506 283880 if you wish to make a booking for the Bookbug session.‚Äč
