Story Club

Encouraging a child to enjoy reading from an early age has a positive effect on their development and their learning providing great fun and enjoyment for children and families at the same time.

Story Clubs provide an informal and exciting way to support parents to encourage pre-school children with reading.

At each Story Club children and their carers can join in with songs and rhymes, listen to stories and enjoy a craft activity relating to the theme of the week’s story, entirely free of charge.     

Story Clubs are restarting in the following Libraries from week commencing 8th November 2021:

Bettws Library - Monday 11am - 11.45am
