Staff at Torfaen Libraries will be marking 10 years of Rhyme Time sessions next week.
To celebrate they will be running a series of story based sessions at Cwmbran Library on Friday September 24. Spaces will be limited so booking is essential.
There will also be a Facebook Live Rhyme Time special on the day for anyone who can’t attend.
The sessions will be held at 10am, 11am, 12am, 1pm and 2pm, and will last 30 minutes. Each session will include stories, puppets and props and nursery rhymes. The Facebook Live event will be at 4pm.
Councillor Joanne Gauden, Executive Member for Economy and Skills, said: “I’d like to thank the library team for their continued work in keeping Rhyme Time going for such a long time. It really is an achievement for such a small team.
“We know from feedback that the sessions are thoroughly enjoyed, and I’d encourage anyone with young children to sign up for a session or get involved online.
“This will be the team’s first online live Facebook session so please be patient if any internet issues arise. The team were keen to interact to get as many children as possible involved which is why they chose 4pm, so those who are in schools can get involved too.
“So parents and carers, add the date to the diary, it’s sure to be a fun and interactive 30 minutes.”
To book a place at one of the library story time sessions, telephone Cwmbran Library on 01633 647676. Five families can attend each library story session which includes 1 adult and a maximum of 2 children.
