Nursery children had a wonderful visit from the lovely Jayne Jenkins of Barnet Library Services! We enjoyed singing songs and listening to stories together. Nursery families had the opportunity to learn more about the importance of reading and how to make the most of our libraries. At the end of the visit all of the children were given a new book to enjoy at home!
