If you go down to the library today you're in for a BIG surprise... the Bookstart Bear Club is here!
Each child who joins the Bookstart Bear Club library will receive a membership folder containing a Bookstart Bear Club Passport, a bookmark, a press out puppet sheet and a rhymesheet. Children then receive a paw stamp in their Bookstart Bear Club Passport every time they take part in Rhymetime, Storytime or borrow items. After six stamps they receive a reward certificate. There are ten reward certificates to collect, including an extra-special tenth gold certificate! The certificates can take pride of place on their nursery wall and be a lovely keepsake of their early visits to the library.
The club is available to join now. To take part your child must be 0-4 years old and have their own library membership card. Library membership is free and you can join them online or by visiting your local library. You can also do an online version of the Bookstart Bear Club with your child by posting book reviews, playing games and sharing stories together at home.
