Library launch under-4 session

A new weekly session for under-fours has been launched at Goldthorpe Library.

Families with children aged up to four years old are invited to come along and join Goldie the puppet, for songs, rhymes and stories, from 10-10.45am.

Bookstart aims to support and encourage families to share books, stories and rhymes with children from an early age, and a visit to the library is a great place to start.

Derrick Taylor, Assistant Director for Adult and Communities said: “Joining in with rhymes and songs is not only great fun for children and their parents but has been shown to support the development of language and communication skills and help children to interact socially.

“Through these groups we hope to show that libraries are great places to visit for people of any age.”
