ESSEX LIBRARY SERVICES
Essex Library Services are bringing their popular rhymetimes, story times and crafts online with videos featuring the library stars from across Essex.
Families can enjoy sharing stories, join in with actions and sing along to favourite nursery rhymes, and be inspired to build, craft and create. They will share these children’s videos on Twitter and Facebook throughout the week. You’ll find links to any rhymetime and story time or any craft time you may have missed on the Essex library service website.
