Cheshire West and Chester Libraries have a range of events planned for ‘Pyjamarama Week’ this week.
The event is a new national scheme that replaces the old National BookStart Week and promotes the magic of having a bedtime story.
Library events include Pyjamarama themed storytime and crafts in Westminster Park (Chester) and Whitby Park (Ellesmere Port) and numerous libraries in the borough.
You can also enjoy a story walk, crafts and rhymes at Lees Lane’s fairy woodlands in Neston.
Council leader, and portfolio holder for wellbeing, Cllr Louise Gittins said: “Reading and singing rhymes is one of the best bonding experiences that parents and carers can share with their children.
“Pyjamarama is a fantastic opportunity to get children engaged with rhymes and reading from a young age.
“I’d encourage families to come along to the fantastic events we have planned at libraries across the borough. Wearing pyjamas is optional for added fun.”
She added: “All events are free and if you’re not currently a library member you can join for free, either online or at any Cheshire West library.”
