Events

Tuesdays
Bounce and Rhyme sessions for toddlers. Term time only. 9.30 - 10am and 11 - 11.30am  

Experts have discovered that if a child knows eight nursery rhymes by heart by the time they are four years old, they are usually among the best at reading and spelling in their class by the time they are in Year 3. Enjoy sharing songs and rhymes with your pre-school children in a group setting, and help increase their language concentration and listening skills in these fun sessions. 

Hull and East Riding Institute for the Blind (HERIB) drop in session. Third Tuesday of the Month. 1 - 3pm

Knit and Natter. Term time only. 1 – 3pm

Research shows it can help prevent and manage stress and pain. No need to book, just come along and join our friendly group. 

Tablet Time. Starts Tuesday 10 January 2017, 1 - 2pm, and weekly thereafter.
This informal group meet weekly in the library, with their tablets, to share knowledge and ideas.
