Tues 15 Jun, Studio family, libraries
Storytelling session for pre-school children, with Solihull Libraries staff.
Solihull Libraries will be hosting free weekly storytime sessions at The Core, aimed at pre-school children. Whilst we are still under social distancing restrictions, Storytime sessions will take place in the Studio at The Core, and places are limited. There are only 12 'bubbles' available, and each bubble may consist of one adult and up to two children* from the same household. Each ticket entitles you to one bubble.
*If you need your bubble to contain more than one adult, or more than 2 children, please call Box Office to discuss space and availability.
Each parent/child bubble will be given an allocated square within the Studio. If a family needs 2 adults for their children to attend, let us know so we can extend the space. Adults should wear a mask at all times at The Core. Toilet and baby changing facilities are available within The Core and Encore Café is open daily.
The sessions are free but must be pre-booked via Box Office. T: 0121 704 6962 or online.
The sessions can’t be pre-booked more than a week in advance and each new session will go on sale at 12noon on Tuesdays. Please don't book for others as we'll be using your online booking for Test and Trace purposes.
If you realise that you'll be unable to attend and have booked a 'bubble' place please let us know, so that we can offer your place to another family - these sessions are very popular. As soon as we can, we'll open the sessions back up to greater numbers per session - we appreciate your patience in following the booking rules during these difficult times.
Refugee Week 2021
Refugee Week 2021 takes place from 14 - 20 June, and this year's theme is 'We Cannot Walk Alone'. Refugee Week is an invitation to extend your hand to someone new. Someone who is outside your current circle, has had an experience you haven’t, or is fighting for a cause you aren’t yet involved in.
To commemorate Refugee Week, Solihull Libraries will be running a special edition of their storytime sessions. This week's librarian storyteller is Sharon C.
This week's story is A Child's Garden: A Story of Hope by Michael Foreman
Master storyteller Michael Foreman has created a timely and moving story of a child creating a garden of hope in the midst of poverty and war. Master storyteller Michael Foreman has created a timely and moving story of a child creating a garden of hope in the midst of poverty and war. A boy’s world is ruin and rubble, with a wire fence and soldiers separating him from the cool hills where his father used to take him as a small child. Can a tiny, green plant shoot give him hope in a bleak landscape?
Please note that this is a Solihull Libraries Storytime session, and not Storytime with Sohan.
