Media Release: Author, Vivian French, to lead special Bookbug session for children


ACCLAIMED author, Vivian French, will be leading a very special Bookbug session for children at Elgin library on Saturday (October 8) at 11am.

Places are free but must be booked by calling the library on 01343 562600.

Bookbug sessions are suitable for babies and toddlers and form part of the national Bookbug programme which encourages and helps to develop reading from the earliest possible age.

Saturday’s session will also see a relaunch of the Bookbug library challenge which rewards pre-school children for borrowing books on their own tickets.

Jane Sandell, senior library for young people’s services, said: “It is never too early to introduce children to books, stories and reading or to get them into the habit of using their library. We are always delighted to see children of any age in our libraries.”

Moray Council area stretches from Tomintoul in the south to the shores of the Moray Firth, from Keith in the east to Forres in the west. The council and its 4,500 employees respond to the needs of 95,510 residents in this beautiful part of Scotland, which nestles between Aberdeenshire and the Highlands.

Famous for its colony of dolphins, fabulous beaches and more malt whisky distilleries than any where else in Scotland, Moray is a thriving area and a great place to live.

Headquartered in Elgin, the administrative capital of Moray.
