What is the Bookstart Bear Club?
The Bookstart Bear Club is open to all children from birth until they start school
It is easy to become a member, simply join the library and then register to start your Bookstart Bear Club reading journey!
If your child is already a member of the library, ask the staff about joining the club
Children are rewarded each time they share a story at our library sessions, take books home or bring books back. They receive a paw print stamp in a special passport, six stamps equals a certificate. There are 10 certificates to collect, the last one being a golden one! Children also receive their very own mini bookstart bear upon completion
