PAISLEY’S Central Library may have closed, but its free Bookbug sessions for kids are still going on at a new venue.
Bookbug’s new home every Monday is at The Lagoon Leisure, Centre, in Paisley.
The Baby Bookbug Group meet to hear stories being told, sing a song or two and generally have lots of fun from 10.15am to 10.45am and the Toddler Group meets from 11.15am to 11.45am.
Bookbug is Scottish Book Trust’s Early Years programme, encouraging parents and children to read together from birth along with a range of fun activities.
Paisley Central Library will move to a temporary home in early 2019 next to the Lagoon Leisure Centre before moving to the new learning and cultural hub being built on the High Street when it re-opens in 2021.
Public access PCs are available at the Paisley.Is offices at 5a High Street, Paisley. Library staff will be on-hand to assist visitors and the opening hours are Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday 9am – 5pm and Tuesday and Thursday 9am – 8pm.
The heritage library will go to a temporary home in Mile End Mill for the next four years then move back into the museum when it reopens.
The work is part of an investment in Paisley town centre venues by Renfrewshire Council to support a wider push to use the town’s unique cultural and heritage assets to transform the area’s future and bring new footfall to the town centre.
