At Stoneleigh Library we try and support the whole community by encouraging the use of our premises for various activities.
Library Rhymetime sessions are aimed at babies and toddlers aged under five, along with their parents and carers. The events consist of sharing nursery rhymes, action songs and percussion music. Sessions are free and there's no need to book, just show up - it's fun, interactive and noisy!
Mondays 10.30 am - 11.00 am
** From 16th May onwards, Rhymetime will be held every fortnight (rather than weekly). **
Please come early as places may be limited.
