Get creative in Kent Libraries

Baby rhyme time

Baby rhyme time is a free, fun and noisy way for under 3s to develop a love of language and a foundation for learning. Each session lasts about 20 minutes and includes the opportunity to join in with nursery rhymes and action songs. Find out if your local library is running a baby rhyme time session.


Listening to stories is a great way to develop and encourage young children to read books. Come and join one of our storytime sessions for 3 to 4 year olds - it's great fun! Find out if your local library is running a storytime session.
