Library Adventures Live (LAL) - for aged 4 to 11

About the event

Library Adventures Live! is a magnificent online programme of events for children aged 4 – 11 to reengage them with reading.

Children can watch and join in with their families at home, teachers can use the sessions with children in school or may even use the sessions to support home schooling. The fun adventures are designed to encourage reading for pleasure and stimulate creativity.

From storytelling, draw alongs, poetry and creative activities to do at home, there’s something for everyone. The diverse programme will include sessions designed to engage reluctant readers, playful activities for younger children and updates on what’s trending in children’s fiction.

Watch the regular sessions live every Tuesday at 11am on the Kirklees Libraries YouTube, Facebook or Twitter channels, or watch them later on catch up. You can get involved by sending in your questions live via social media whilst the sessions are on, or e-mailing questions to us in advance at
