Community Libraries

Your local library has a great stock of CDs, DVDs and of course books relevant to families. Libraries have “story-time” sessions for babies and young children followed by an activity which ties in with the story. This is a great way to introduce your child to the fascination of books; it also gives you a chance to renew your own books/DVDs/cd
