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.
Download the Bookbug's Songs and Rhymes app to continue to enjoy Bookbug songs and rhymes
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.
