BookTrust Story Times in Tameside Libraries

Each library in Tameside will be taking part in the BookTrust Story Time Prize. You can join the library staff for a fun story telling session.  There will be a different story each week, followed by a themed craft activity and nursery rhymes.  At the end of the session you and your children will be able to explore the library and see if you can find the six hidden owls in the library!  Your child will receive a sticker book with six stickers to collect.
