It’s a well-known fact that it’s never too early to introduce children and babies to the world of literature if you want them to grow up with a love of reading.
That’s why recent Bookbug sessions to mark World Book Day were such a success.
Chair of East Dunbartonshire Leisure & Culture Trust, Scott Hill, said, “Bookbug sessions are already popular with families in libraries across the area and the children who took part had a great time. This was an excellent opportunity, on World Book Day, to showcase what goes on and I hope it has inspired others to get involved with their young ones.”
Bookbug sessions involve music, rhymes and reading aloud and are the perfect way to introduce children not only to books but to libraries too.
Councillor Alan Moir, Convener of the Council’s Development & Regeneration Committee, said: “We had 40 people at the drop-in Bookbug sessions on World Book Day which was an excellent turn out. We are happy to support schemes like this and to promote them to local families. If it’s a while since you’ve been to your library why not come and see what’s on?”
