National Libraries Day 2015

Saturday, 7 February 2015

Today was National Libraries Day and there were events taking place at libraries around the country.

Little Miss A and I took advantage of some of the activities that were going on at Aylesbury Library.

I love taking Little Miss A to the library and seeing how excited she gets. She knows exactly where the Children's section is and loves wandering around and picking up all sorts of different books. Appropriately today she was looking at the books about Libraries and being a Librarian!

This morning's activities included a Bounce & Rhyme session - a singing session of nursery rhymes and action songs. It's been a while since we've been along to one of these. Little Miss A is really starting to recognise lots of the songs and knows some of the actions. It's great to watch. She did get a bit distracted towards the end of the session and wandered off for a bit! 

After Bounce & Rhyme there was Storytime. Little Miss A sat still and listened to about 2 pages before wanting to go explore again. The book they'd chosen to read was The Scarecrows' Wedding by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler. Therefore, the craft that followed was to make a Scarecrow face. Little Miss A was actually quite interested in doing this. Normally she loses interest with crafts very quickly but today I managed to help her complete the whole face!

After all the chasing around after Little Miss A, I was very thankful for the free cup of tea and biscuit that was on offer!

There were additional activities going on during the day for adults and children, but by this point we were ready to head home.

There was a really good buzz in the library today. I only found out about this event a couple of days ago and I'm glad we went along. We haven't been to the library for a while as Little Miss A received so many new books for Christmas that we haven't needed to get any books out for our bedtime reading. I'll definitely be keeping a closer eye on the Aylesbury Library Facebook page for more events.
