Staff at Central Library have demonstrated their creativity by devising and designing a new series of children’s certificates and a ‘passport’ booklet for children attending pre-school storytimes across the city. Children collect a stamp each time they attend a session and receive a certificate after collecting 6 stamps, with 6 great certificates to collect!

Quotes from some of our favourite children’s books were chosen and used to inspire and design the illustration on each of the certificates.

Storytimes help your child to get to know sounds, words and language and develop their concentration, social skills, communication and imagination. They’re also a great way to meet other parents and carers with young children.

With storytime sessions taking place right across the city, we’re now back up to pre-pandemic numbers and we hope that these certificates will be an added incentive for families to attend! A huge thank you to the Central Library staff for developing the passports and certificates.
