Storytime & Rhymetimes

Storytime & Rhymetimes

From birth to five, children are never too young to enjoy our baby Rhymetimes and toddler Storytimes! 

Storytime is FREE, come and join us...

Peterborough libraries hold weekly under fives ‘storytimes’ and ‘rhymetimes’ in all of our libraries. These provide an opportunity to share stories with parents and carers and to promote books and reading.

Using both old favourites and new titles, storytime aims to encourage young children to develop a life-long love of books from an early age.

There is no need to book for these FREE sessions, just come along and join in the fun!
