The Storytime will be held on the first Wednesday of every month – 2nd May, 6th June, 4th July – from 14.00 and is aimed at children from 2 – 6 years (more or less!). Please sign up for the Storytime at this link: https://doodle.com/poll/r3mc9svrzq9xz9gv.
And, in case you’re wondering, yes there is an English Children’s Library coming to town. Although they are currently scouting for a permanent location, you can already start borrowing books from them here: http://clelausanne.weebly.com/
