Thursday morning fun at Armley Hub

By Ivor Hughes

Are Thursday mornings at Armley Library and Community Hub worthy of Royal Approval?

The Princess of Wales has recently undertaken to encourage and support the development of children during their earliest years. Leeds City Council were already ahead of the game at Armley Library.

Learning activities for the under fives

With both Thursday morning activities in the library section, there is obviously some interchange between Story Time (pre-school storytelling and singing) and Family Breakfast Banter (games and reading for parents and under fives).

Story Time is from 10.30am to 11am with an optional extension to 11.30am. Family Breakfast Banter is from 10.30am to 11.30am

Assistant Librarian Alison Bedford organises Story Time and may be contacted through the library, where explanatory leaflets are available. Lead contact for both, Kirsty Jamieson, runs the Family Breakfast Banter; or 07566 759576.
