Bookbug Sessions

Library services for people living, working and studying in North Lanarkshire.

Bookbug North Lanarkshire

In-person Bookbug Sessions

Our in-person Bookbug sessions have returned. Bring your little ones along to the library and enjoy songs, rhymes and stories from our Bookbug Leaders. The sessions give your little ones the chance to socialise with others and learn through play and songs.

Bookings for each session are library specific with some now returning to drop-in sessions. Please check directly with the library before attending to find out if a prior booking is required.
