Bookbug sessions are fun, free and friendly events, open to babies, toddlers and their families to enjoy together.
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 Week will take place on the week beginning 15 May. This year's theme is Bookbug's Big Giggle and there will be a whole host of fun story, song, rhyme and craft activities taking place in local libraries. Celebrate with us by coming along to our events.
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.
