Nursery Library Visit

27.02.19 & 28.02.19

As part of raising the profile of reading nursery children and parents went on a visit to the ‘Birmingham Library.’

They all have a fantastic time and got the chance to share lots of books and listen to several stories.

For some children it was not only the first time that they had been to visit the Birmingham library but also the first time they had been on a bus.
