Rhymetime takes place on Monday, March 2, in Yatton Library, at 9.30am, and on Friday, March 6, in Pill Library, at 9.30am.

Story times will take place on Tuesday, March 3, in Clevedon Library at 11.15am. On Thursday, March 5, they will take place in Nailsea Library, at 2pm, Portishead Library at 2.15pm and Yatton Library at 2.30pm.

Children are welcome to come dressed as their favourite characters from the wonderful world of fiction at any of these events.
