For Kids

The 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence is a UN and global initiative bringing individuals, communities, and organisations together to address gender inequalities and eradicate violence against women and girls around the world. From 25 November to 10 December, storytimes across our libraries will feature books that reflect the campaign and promote boys and girls as equals. 

We’re excited to welcome children and their families back for Rhymetime, Storytime and Stories and Songs in person, from Monday 8 November. For the next few weeks all sessions will take place outdoors. Bookings are required for all adults and children aged over 12 months.
