Kids Zone

The Deepings Library, Kids Zone

Looking to get your kids into reading? Kids Zone is a great place to start. We cherish the opportunity to get kids involved in literature and know that early learning development is key to your child's enjoyment. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic we are unable to offer the in library activities detailed below - we are offering various online activities for you and your children even whilst the library is closed. We hope that once we are open we'll be able to ad to our virtual offering to families. Please check out our latest news on the website and/or follow us on facebook for updates.

Below is an idea of what activities we have one when social distancing is no longer a necessity.

We believe in starting a love of libraries at the very beginning so we encourage babies to come to Book Babies on a Tuesday 10-11.30am and toddlers to come to rhyme time on a Friday 11:00-11:30am.

Our army of experienced storytellers hold a popular story time for pre-schoolers on Wednesday afternoon at 2:00 pm. Our Frog Pod is a favourite feature of the Library with iPads with built in games specially designed for little ones and there is a computer that can be used free of charge.

Mums and Dads enjoy joining in with our Lego club too which is held every on 4th Saturday of the month and every Monday afternoon of the school holidays. 50p Fridays during school holidays is a great way to while away an hour or so in the library. We have made May the 4th our own with the Deepings own Star Wars Day and we offer legendary broomstick training at our Harry Potter Day in February.
