Activities for Under 5’s

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 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.
