The Easter Holiday is almost here – two whole weeks of no school!
It can be tough to keep the children happy and avoid that dreaded boredom! If you’re looking for things to do and days out without spending a fortune trips to the library could be just what you’re after.
Not only do we have chapter books, funny books, adventure books, picture books, graphic novels, joke books, search-and-find books and so much more that you can borrow for FREE!
Try MicroBIT kits – minicomputers that you can borrow, take home and use for coding.
Borrow an audiobook or eAudiobook and listen to stories in the car, on the move or before bed.
Most regular activities and groups, such as rhymetime, storytime, construction club and regular craft sessions, continues to run during the half-term – check with your local library for more information.
Come into your local library and find out what else you can borrow and why not combine your visit with one of the amazing activities taking place!
