Catch the reading bug

Working with NHS Borders and Early Years our libraries help encourage a lifelong love of books and reading through Bookbug, the Early Years Literacy Programme. Bookbug provides free books, activities and guidance for parents and carers.

Bookbug Sessions run in most of our Libraries, either weekly, fortnightly or term time only.  Please check online on your local Library web page for further details of sessions in your area.

Free book packs are given to children at around 6 weeks, 18 months and 3 years old along with guidance materials for parents and carers.

Bookbug helps encourage a love of books through a range of fun activities, including free Bookbug sessions and the Bookbug Library Challenge.
