Library invite for parents

Have your say

PAREnts of newborn babies are being invited to visit Barnsley Central Library on Shambles Street to discover what is on offer for families.

A free, informal ‘tiny tots’ welcome session has been organised for next Monday, January 14, to run from 1.45pm until 2.45pm.

It has been arranged as part of the Bookstart scheme, which gets children involved with books from birth.

Families taking part will receive a goody bag including a free book and height chart.

Parents of babies up to six months can book a place by phone on 01226 773 935, email to, or by calling into the children’s library.

The session will be repeated on March 11, May 13, and July 8 and there are plans to repeat it in other parts of the town.
