Bookbug Sessions

What are they?

Free, friendly, fun sessions of songs, rhymes and stories for babies, toddlers, pre-schoolers and their families and carers to enjoy together. Each session lasts around 30 minutes and has been designed to support children’s development while having fun. They take place in a very relaxed environment and are a great opportunity to spend some quality time with your little one, and meet other families.

Bookbug Sessions are held regularly at Stornoway Library (01851 822744) and Liniclate Library (01870 603691). Look out for posters at your library or contact them for more information.


Rhymes and songs help your baby’s language skills and are great building blocks for your baby’s future learning. Sharing time singing with your babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers is a fantastic way to have fun together. And it’s a great place to meet other families. Come along and join in the fun.

All our libraries have a wonderful selection of books for children; from board books for the very smallest, to picture books and more.

There are no fines charged for late or damaged books!
