A Message from Essex Library Services:

Essex Library Services are bringing our popular rhymetimes, story times and crafts online with videos featuring our library stars from across Essex. Families can enjoy sharing stories, join in with actions and sing along to favourite nursery rhymes, and be inspired to build, craft and create. We’ll share these children’s videos on Twitter and Facebook throughout the week. You’ll find links to any rhymetime and story time or any craft time you may have missed on our website. For more information read the full story on our website.
