Bookbug at Galashiels Library


We are so excited to bring back face to face Bookbug sessions at the Galashiels Library which will be hosted by a member of the Live Borders Library Team, as part of a phased approach to re-starting our much loved Bookbug sessions.

Free, friendly, fun sessions of songs, rhymes and stories for babies, toddlers, and their families and carers. Each session lasts around 30 minutes and has been designed to support children’s development while having fun. They take place in a very relaxed environment and are a great opportunity to spend some quality time with your little one, and meet other families.

Sessions will take place on a Wednesday from 29 September to 24 November 2021 (Please note there is no session on Wednesday 13 and 20 October).

These Bookbug sessions are suitable for children aged 0-3 accompanied with parents/carers and pre-booking is essential.

Please see below for our class timetable:

Rhymes and songs help your baby’s language skills and are great building blocks for your baby’s future learning. Sharing time singing with your child is a fantastic way to have fun together. And it’s a great place to meet other families. Come along and join in the fun!

Sharing books, songs and rhymes for a few minutes a day will:

  • Develop language skills
  • Allow time for cuddling and bonding
  • Help families to relax
  • Boost children’s confidence
  • Encourage drawing and writing
  • Provide a strong start in life

Each session is currently limited to 15 adults.

Whilst attending a session we ask all parent’s/carers to wear masks at the beginning and the end of the session and to follow good hygiene practice.

Please do not attend a session if you are displaying coronavirus symptoms.
