Bookbug Learning Pre-school

Bookbug

  • Friday, 21 Jan 22 at 11:00 AM
Ages 0+ Cost: Free
  • Wheelchair Accessible
  • Guide Dogs Welcome

Bookbug sessions have not yet resumed in all libraries. We're starting carefully and with reduced numbers to ensure the welfare of staff and customers. To make sure everyone has lots of space, sessions are held in rooms separate from the rest of the library, where possible, and attendee numbers are reduced. 

 

Bookbug Sessions are free, fun and friendly events for babies, toddlers and their families to enjoy together. Our sessions are suitable for ages 0+.

There's gentle songs for bouncing babies and loads of chances to move for toddlers who've found their feet! There are also stories and probably a few rhymes you'll remember from your own childhood.

Stay safe with Bookbug
We continue to follow Scottish Government guidance. Please wear a facecovering, if you are able, even while seated. Please also use the hand sanitiser provided when you enter the library and throughout your visit. We encourage everyone to take a Lateral Flow Test prior to attending.

Please do not attend if you have any Coronavirus symptoms, or if someone close to you has tested positive, or is awaiting the results of a PCR test. 

We are restricting the number of attendees so that we can give everyone lots of space and require advance online booking to manage this. We will use the information provided in your booking for contact tracing. 

Your safety is our biggest concern and we appreciate your patience.

How to book
Numbers for sessions are strictly limited so booking is highly recommended to ensure a place. Tickets are available 6 days before each session on Eventbrite, from 10am. 

The event usually sells out quickly, but do check back in the couple of days before the event as we often have returns.

  • The parent attending the session will book a place for themselves.
  • There's no need to book a space for your child(ren).
  • Your booking allows you to bring up to two children with you.
  • Please don't bring along another adult with you to allow us to maintain a good physical distance.

If you don’t have access to the internet to book via Eventbrite, you can call or visit the library where the session is taking place. Please note that spaces will go quickly and that staff are using the same system that those booking online will be using, so securing a place cannot be guaranteed.

About Bookbug
There is a weekly Bookbug session in every library in Falkirk area. Sessions last around 30 to 45 minutes.The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly and they're the perfect chance for you to spend quality time with your wee one and meet other mums, dads, grandparents and carers.

Find out more about the benefits of the Bookbug programme, including Bookbug Bag gifting, on the Scottish Book Trust website.

  • Visit our Babies and Preschoolers page for more information for families with young children, including Bookbug Library Challenge, Bookbug bags and My 1st Library Card.

 

Nurseries/child minders
We know that child minders and nurseries will be excited to come along, but we ask that you do not book into any of these sessions as numbers are limited for the moment and the new families who have missed out on so much are given priority at the moment.

Accessibility
The Bo'ness Bookbug session takes place upstairs in the community room. There are no lift facilities at Bo'ness Library.
