Storytimes and Stay & Play Sessions


Sharing books and coming to storytimes are fun and a great way to help under 5s develop their listening, thinking and talking skills.

All storytimes and stay and play sessions are free so why not come along?

  • Listen to stories
  • Join in with the rhymes and songs
  • Play with toys
  • Hands on activities
  • Browse & borrow the books
  • Meet other parents and carers

Drop into our sessions at any time - they run weekly in term-time. Please note that sessions can sometimes be changed to a Stay and Play.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, some of our storytimes over the next few weeks will be stay & play sessions only. Please keep checking this page and social media for further updates, and do still come along to play and make new friends! Have fun sharing rhymes and stories with your baby or toddler.

Please note, from Wednesday 4th December, the session at Little Hulton Library will take place on a Wednesday at the new time of 10.45am - 11.45am.
