1pm: Victorian Day Children's Storytime Sessions
Chipping Sodbury Library
On Victorian Day the library will be open as usual and will stay open until 2.30pm so that two Storytime sessions for children can take place.
The first session will run 1-1.30pm for pre–school children (siblings welcome) and the second 2-2.30pm for 5–8 year old children (siblings welcome).
So, if the kids are getting bored and you want to rest your aching feet, why not bring them along to the library for half an hour?

With the help of the Gruffalo, Chipping Sodbury library was successfully relaunched in October as a Community Library run by volunteers.
It continues to offer the same services as id did before and, in addition, is open all day on Wednesday when Yate library is shut.
The opening hours are Tuesday 09.30 - 12.30 and 13.30 to 4.30, Wednesday 09.30 to 4.30, Friday 09.30 to 12.30 and Saturday 09.30 to 12.30.
South Glos libraries installed a brand new self-service machine and so far, apart from the odd hiccup, all is going well.
The large team of volunteers are enthusiastically learning the ropes and are very grateful for the patience being shown by users.
They are more than happy to give their time to keep the library open and enjoy helping people get the most out of it.
A lot of effort went into persuading South Glos Council not to close the library, so please come in and use it so that we can prove to them that they made the right decision.
On Victorian Day (December 2nd) the library will be open as usual and will stay open until 2.30 so that two Storytime sessions for children can take place. The first session will be from 1.00- 1.30 for Pre–school children (siblings welcome) and the second from 2.00 – 2.30 for 5 – 8 year old children (siblings welcome).
So, if the kids are getting bored and you want to rest your aching feet why not bring them along to the library for half an hour.
Following a campaign by local residents, who formed a Friends of Chipping Sodbury Library group, South Gloucestershire Council agreed not to close Chipping Sodbury Library as part of their 2017 savings measures.
A call for volunteers resulted in over forty people coming forward to help and, with support from Sodbury Town Council, they now staff the library so users can continue to enjoy it.
South Glos Libraries continue to provide books, CDs, DVDs and IT support for the three computers.
