Library opens its doors to entice little bookworms

Have your say

Parents of babies are being invited to take their little ones to Barnsley’s central library to discover what it has to offer families.

The free informal session, at the library’s new temporary home at Wellington House, has been organised as part of the Bookstart scheme where parents can find out about the benefits of an early introduction to books.

The ‘Tiny Tots Welcome’ will be held on Monday from 1.45pm to 2.45pm and parents of babies, from birth to six months, can book by calling 01226 773935 or emailing
