Help Required With Children’s Sessions

We are always on the look out for reliable volunteers to work in the library (please click here for more details if you wish to join the team), but sometimes we need people who want to do specific jobs, and one of those is to help out in the Children’s library with the activity sessions.

We are lucky to have the wonderful Molly, who comes on a Tuesday morning with her guitar and sings to a group of under fives. She is assisted by one of our volunteers, but unfortunately for us that volunteer is away for the next few months, and really can not do every Tuesday morning when she is here, so we need someone desperately to help Molly out with that. It just entails sitting with Molly and reading a couple of short picture-book stories to the children in between songs during the half hour session between 10-10.30 am. Ideally the volunteer would also help setting out chairs for the parents and clearing them away again afterwards.

On a Thursday afternoon we should have ‘baby-bounce’ where the sessions are aimed at children around 2 years old and again last about half an hour from 2pm -2.30pm. These tend to be a much more low-key affair, with some nursery rhymes and story books, accompanied by the children who are issued rattles and maracas and other basic instruments with which they can make a noise! Unfortunately we currently have no one to take those sessions at all and have had to turn children away, so if your idea of fun is to encourage kids to read and learn nursery rhymes, and for them to have a great and noisy time doing so, then this should be perfect for you!

Both sessions are held in the children’s library room and all children attending are accompanied by an adult. There is no one-to-one time and there are other volunteers present at all times in the library. No experience necessary, just enthusiasm and reliability!

So if you think you could lend a hand on a Tuesday morning or Thursday afternoon then please do let us know, you can email Simon at rota@fhlibrary.co.uk or come in to the library for a chat.
