  • Being online is a part of everyday life, and is a valuable and important tool for children to use in learning and communication.

    Children have access to computers through schools, libraries and at home, so it’s important that parents and carers understand the risks of being online, and how to protect the child against these risks.

    TMBC are running a number of Online Safety talks and workshops in libraries across the borough from July to October. There are two separate one- hour sessions that parents, carers and youth workers can book onto. The first is an introduction to the dangers of being online, and offers practical advice about online safety, and the second workshop will provide practical help with updating devices with security settings.

  • Volunteers aged 12 to 18 are needed to help run activity sessions for children taking part in the Summer Reading Challenge during the summer holidays.

    No experience is required - volunteers just need to attend three activity sessions at Tameside libraries during the school holidays and be able to explain things in a clear, friendly and enthusiastic way. All the support they need will be provided.

Festival of Learning

Make a Noise in Libraries with an interactive music workshop. The event will take place on Wednesday 14 June, from 10 – 11.30am at Dukinfield Lively Library Club. It’s a free workshop of drumming and song delivered by Tameside Music Service, which is open to everyone.

Join us for this ‘feel good’ event with uplifting songs and rhythms where you’ll have fun and really enjoy yourself.


This event is part of Make a Noise in Libraries Fortnight 2017 which runs from 5 to 18 June. It’s an annual campaign organised by the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) which brings public libraries and blind and partially sighted people together.


So come along and help us celebrate Make a Noise in Libraries Fortnight with this very special event. The workshop is free and everyone is welcome. There is no need to book, just turn up on the day and refreshments will be provided.
