Rhyme Time in the Library

Last Tuesday morning while I was working in the office I needed to pop into the Central Library at Eastgardens to fix something up with our youth workers.  On my way through I witnessed something really good.  It was rhyme time (something’s that’s held every Tuesday and Friday) and the special kids’ place in the library was packed.  Babies and toddlers sat and watched with joy and their parents, grandparents or carers joined in with the nursery rhymes, led by one of the exuberant library staff.  It was something to see – all the children were really having a great time.  At 10.00am, when the Central Library opens they are all lined up ready to race through the library to get their spots for 30 minutes of rhyme time. After rhyme time, it’s time for the pre-schoolers to enjoy storytime and craft, which begins at 11.00am and finishes at 11.45am.  These are just a couple of regular events that give our library a sense of joy along with some socialising and a great deal of fun.
