WATER lot of fun there was for the babies and toddlers who came along to Renfrewshire Leisure’s first Bookbug in the Bath sessions.

Instead of the usual setting of a local library, there were four popular Bookbug sessions held in a swimming pool.

Children had a splashing time when Bookbug came to the pools at Paisley’s Lagoon and the Johnstone Sports Hub. And there was even storytelling, nursery rhymes and songs in Gaelic at one of the sessions.

Chairperson of Renfrewshire Leisure, Councillor Lisa-Marie Hughes explained: “We know that children love coming to our usual Bookbug groups and they also like splashing about in the water at our swimming pools.

“So we thought we could combine the two fun activities and it worked very well, as both the children and the grown-ups had a great time.

“We also staged a Gaelic Bookbug in the Bath session, as there’s a growing interest in the language locally and we already have Bookbug in Gaelic in our libraries.”

The Bookbug in the Bath sessions were held to coincide with Paisley Book Festival.
