“Excellent – such a lifeline with three children. I would recommend it to everyone. Also great for getting the kids interested in books as we always stay and choose some to borrow” (Parent, Staple Hill Library).
“Fantastic session for pre-school age children. My children love it and have made many friends. Great for language development” (Parent, Thornbury Library)
