Bookstart Bear's Adventure Day

Free Events for Under 5s
at Tameside Libraries


Bring your bear for a reading adventure!
CHILDREN are being encouraged to celebrate World Book Day in Tameside by bringing their teddy bears on a reading adventure. Tameside Libraries will be holding four free Bookstart Bear Adventure Days for under fives including interactive storytelling, games, songs, and craft activities.  Every child will receive a free World Book Day £1 Book Token and there will be a free Bookstart Bear’s Reading Adventure book for library members. If you are not a member of the library you can join on the day.
