Baby Bounce at Kempsey Library
The next Baby Bounce session at Kempsey Library will be held on Friday 14 March, from 10:30am to 11am. Baby Bounce is a literacy program that focuses on simple activities – including singing and sharing stories - that together develop a love of books and reading in very young children.
Parents and carers also learn new ways to engage their babies and toddlers in reading centred activities. Baby Bounce sessions are suited to children aged 0 to 2 years, and are free to attend. No need to book, just turn up to enjoy the fun.
