Library groups for youngsters

February’s holidays have come and gone.

The end of this month sees the Easter holidays and the supermarkets are already full of Easter Eggs and such like.

Here’s what is on for you in Brechin Library over the next few weeks.

Story Time:-

Enjoy hearing a story or two? In that case, if you are under five, why not pop along to Brechin Library on a Tuesday morning from 10 am to 10.30 am and listen to some stories told to you by a member of staff.

Bookbug Rhymetime:-

This takes place every Tuesday morning from 11 am to 11.30 am during term time.

Those who attend have lots of fun singing songs and rhymes using puppets and musical instruments.

Sessions are open to all under fives

On Saturday, February 4 the library staged had a special Bookbug session for National Libraries Day.

Although it was an absolutely awful day it was a success and even one dad braved the elements to be in attendance.


There was a really good Chatterbooks meeting in February, discussing books that members had read.

Everyone has taken away a spoken word book to listen to and will talk about the differences between listening to a story compared to reading it for themselves.

Which Writer Wins:-

This year’s authors are Geraldine McCauchrean, Jenny Nimmo and Kaye Umanski and by the time you read this the winner will have been announced, along with the winners of the book tokens for best art work and best review of a book written by one of the authors.

A display of all your art work and reviews will be in the Junior Library for the next few weeks for you to pop in and view.

Christine, the librarian, visited Maisondieu Primary School and thoroughly enjoyed talking to pupils about Which Writer Wins.

Edzell and Stracathro Schools paid a visit to the library and this was enjoyed by all.

Easter Holidays:-

During the Easter holidays Brechin Library will be running a “Hunt the Egg” competition.

There will be a wee goodie for everyone who completes it.
