*IMPORTANT INFORMATION regarding Wooden Eggs in Bookbug Gift Bags - find full details here

Bookbug is the Scottish Book Trust’s early years programme. It aims to encourage a love of books from a young age through a range of free fun activities and the giving of free books. East Ayrshire Libraries work closely with Bookbug to deliver the very popular Bookbug sessions where children aged from birth to four years enjoy stories, singing and activities with their parents and carers.


Bookbug Sessions in all libraries are taking a break for the Easter holidays.  The final session of this term will be on Saturday 1st April and the new term will begin on Wednesday 19th April.  There will be no sessions in between. 

Free Bookbug packs are gifted to babies, toddlers, 3 year olds and Primary 1 pupils.

If you are interested in taking part in any of the free Bookbug activities or if your child hasn’t received a Bookbug pack, please ask at your local library or call 01563 554300.
