Wolverhampton's libraries are once again offering a packed programme of regular and holiday events for young bookworms, following the easing of Covid-19 restrictions.

They include Baby Book Time sessions at Central Children's Library every Tuesday from 10.30am to 11.30am and Bilston Library on Wednesdays from 11am to 12pm, and Storytime sessions for under 5s at Warstones Library on Tuesdays from 2.30pm to 3pm, Wednesfield Library on Wednesdays from 11.30am to 12pm and Central Children's Library on Saturdays from 12.15pm to 1pm.

Meanwhile, Penn Library will be launching a monthly Saturday story and craft session for children aged 5 and over from 13 November, from 2.15pm to 3.15pm.

In addition, there are a number of activities taking place over half term, including Poet in a Day workshops at Central Library on Wednesday 27 October, one for 7 to 11 year olds from 10am to 12pm and one for 12 to 16 year olds from 1pm to 3pm. The same day, Central Children's Library is hosting a Light Up The Skies story and craft session for children aged 5 and over from 2pm to 3.30pm.

And on Saturday 30 October, Penn Library is inviting children aged 3 and over to enjoy some Halloween Havoc with a story and craft session from 2.30pm to 3.30pm. 

Places are limited in line with Covid-safety guidelines, so sessions must be pre booked by contacting the appropriate library. Please note, a School of Wizardry event at Warstones Library is already fully booked.

Councillor Jasbir Jaspal, the City of Wolverhampton Council's Cabinet Member for Public Health and Wellbeing, said: "It is great to be able to welcome youngsters back into our libraries to enjoy popular activities like Baby Book Times, storytimes and craft sessions. This is just a starting point and, all being well, we hope to launch more sessions in our other libraries in the new year.”

Meanwhile, adults can enjoy a virtual reading group and join in with discussions about popular titles either over the phone or online. Phone 01902 552025 or email readingfriends@wolverhampton.gov.uk for more details.
