Bookbug at Glasgow Libraries
Bookbug events are free, friendly and fun-filled 30 minute sessions for parents and carers to enjoy with babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers involving song, stories and rhymes.
A gradual recovery of Bookbug will start in community libraries week beginning 27th Sept 2021.
Free, friendly, fun sessions of songs, rhymes and stories for babies, toddlers, preschoolers 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.
Glasgow Libraries Bookbug Sessions
Glasgow Libraries Bookbug session featuring Splishy Splashy Songs and Rhymes
Children respond to song, story and rhyme in a very special way and Bookbug sessions celebrate this. These sessions help improve speech, language and brain development, as well as social and emotional skills. But that's not all, they are also great fun!
Bookbug encourages mums, dads and carers to sing and share stories with their children from birth. Children love these interactive sessions and it provides an opportunity for parents to bond with their child by giving them one to one quality time! It's also a great way to meet other parents and carers, swap ideas and support each other along the way.
PLEASE NOTE: Bookbug sessions are subject to change and we recommend contacting your local library in advance to check sessions are running that week.
Bookbug gifts every child in Scotland four free bags of books in their first 5 years.
