Welcome to our online activities Norfolk libraries page for children and families.
Find out about eBooks and eMagazines that you can download from our e-book library and the online activities we are providing while our library buildings are closed.
Activities for Under 5s
Are you the parent of a new baby? We're pleased to be able to offer a new stay and chat group, via Zoom, on a Tuesday morning at 11am. Why not enjoy Bounce and Rhyme at 10am, grab a coffee (or feed your baby, or both!) and join us for a chat at 11am. We normally have a guest who will share some information on a relevant topic for a few minutes, followed by time to chat. If you’d like to join a session please email firstname.lastname@example.org. It’s very informal, you can pop in and out as you need to, and please don’t worry if your baby has other ideas.
Bounce and Rhyme
Songs and rhymes are an excellent way of engaging with your little one, no-one is too young. As you can't join us in the library at the moment, why not join in online.
Watch and join in with rhymes at home through our main Norfolk Libraries Facebook page every Tuesday morning at 10am. You can also watch past sessions on our YouTube channel.

We're always updating our ebook collections, with lots of new titles to keep children busy. Our children's eLibrary has lots of suggested titles and ideas to get reading.
Story Writer's Club is a friendly, fun Zoom group for 8-11-year-olds who enjoy bringing their stories to life on the page.
