Rhyme time

Icon information white

Please note while we are maintaining social distancing we have had to reduce attendance levels for our rhyme time sessions and for the time being these need to be booked in advance. To check availability and to book a space, please contact your local library.

Rhyme time is a free service for under fives. It is a popular session for a fun and stimulating half hour of classic nursery rhymes, little stories and finger rhymes.

A great opportunity to meet other local parents and learn new songs that your children will love. 

The service is provided at all our libraries at the following times:

  • Greenhill Library - Wednesday 11.00 - 11.30
  • Kenton Library - Tuesday 11.00 - 11.30
  • Pinner Library - Thursday 10.30 - 11.00
  • Roxeth Library - Thursday 11.00 - 11.30

Story time

Story time for under fives will be coming back soon.

Chatterbooks reading groups

The Chatterbooks reading group is designed to help children build a relationship with books. Children can talk about what they are reading, take part in fun activities inspired by the best children's books and choose new books to take home and read.

This service will be coming back in the near future.
