Saturday Family Drop-In


​Join us in the Children's Library for our FREE Saturday family drop-in.

Help us to draw giant buildings, from the 'Eiffel tower in Paris' to 'The Shard in London' to the 'Leaning Tower of Pisa'. As well as imagining buildings of the future come to life on our huge piece of paper.

Listen to Storytelling and have a great time with fun games to play.

Promises to be a fantastic fun afternoon for all the family.
