Pre-school children can enrol in Buzzy Bee’s Honey Hunt, a free scheme that rewards young children who borrow books from the library. They can collect cards, stickers and receive a certificate.
A set of colourful cards designed by local artist Wendi New and depicting locations across North Yorkshire will be given to each child as they progress through the scheme. The cards are designed to encourage discussion about the pictures and feature popular songs and rhymes to share.
As well as joining the Honey Hunt, all children under five who visit the library to borrow either four books or a staff-selected book bundle will receive a free goody bag including crafts and musical instruments.
