Volunteering Opportunity: Rhymetime and Storytime Assistants

Suitable for volunteers interested in: Children, Young people

Opportunity activities: Teaching

Description: Rhymetime and storytime sessions are aimed at babies and toddlers, along with their parents and carers. The role of volunteers may include help setting up the area, help selecting the stories and tidying up afterwards. Library storytimes are generally aimed at two- to five-year-olds and provide a fun and enjoyable introduction to books and libraries for young children. Sharing books and stories with young children can help to build good language and listening skills and give them a head start when they begin school. Library storytimes can foster a life long love of reading and show children that it is a fun place to be. Sessions are free and generally last 30 minutes. Library rhymetime sessions are aimed at babies and toddlers, aged under five, along with their parents and carers. The events are based entirely on sharing nursery rhymes, action songs and percussion music. It is fun, interactive and noisy!
