Storytimes and Children's Activities in the Library

Storytimes at Baildon Library

Come along for stories and crafts and fun. There are two sessions a week which run in term-time only;

  • Mondays at 3.45pm for 4-8 year olds
  • Thursdays at 2.30pm for the under 5's

Each session starts with singing and music, a story read by library staff or volunteers and then followed by a craft activity relevant to the story. And it's FREE!

Summer Reading Challenge

The Summer Reading Challenge takes place every year during the summer holidays for 4 to 12 year olds. Children can sign up at their local library, then read six library books of their choice to complete the Challenge. There are exclusive rewards to collect along the way, and it's FREE to take part!

In 2019 the theme is Space Chase to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the lunar landing.

The children who complete the challenge have a chance of being this year's Summer Reading Challenge Champion for Baildon Library.

The champion will be invited a celebration event on Tuesday 22 October 2019 at the Science and Media Museum in Bradford which will include a Space Gallery, prize giving and refreshments.

If you've not started yet, there's still lots of time as the challenge finishes on 14 September 2019. Simply pop into the library and ask a member of staff or one of our volunteers how to register.
