Southsea Library celebrates its 3rd birthday this year and to celebrate, a Teddy Bear’s picnic will be held on the 29th July, from 12 noon – 1 pm. Take your children along to listen to bear stories and make a bear face in the library. You’ll need to take along their favourite furry friend, a blanket and a packed lunch. Each child attending will receive a free booklet.
Opened 3 years ago by bestselling author Kate Mosse, the library is built on the old Woolworths shop site in Palmerston Road . The library hosts regular talks and adult courses including digital photography and IT courses and a craft group on the 2nd Monday of every month.
For children, the library offers regular events, including RhymeTime for toddlers and babies on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 10 am – 10.30 am, and Storytime on Mondays from 2 pm – 2.30 pm. There will be Summer Holiday activities on the 29th July, 5th, 12th, 19th and 26th August (10 am – 12 noon); no need to book, just drop in.
