Special events

BookTrust Storytime

BookTrust Storytime sessions: perfect for first time library visitors with small children.

This Autumn, we are partnering with BookTrust to bring you new story adventures for you and your family! At these free sessions at Woking and Guildford Library, we will be celebrating six brilliant books that we think are great for sharing with young children, from a hilarious tale about whales on a bus to a rabbit that always says no!

Listen to stories read aloud, take part in fun activities and get your own library activity book. There are stickers to gain and even characters that you can collect each time you return to the library.

The sessions are suitable for families with children from 0 to 5 years old. Our main aim is to provide an interactive library experience to help more families discover the joy of reading. If you haven't visited a library before, or your family hasn't engaged before in reading, this is a great opportunity to get involved. You don't need to be a member to join in, just come along and have fun!
