"Hidden away amongst all of these books, there's a secret.

Do you want to know what it is? Every night, after we’ve all gone home, the Book Folk wake up. They run about and read and look after all of these lovely books. But something is happening to the library...the Book Folk need your help!"



Our actor-librarians reveal the world of the Book Folk, miniature puppets who live amongst the bookshelves. Children will be led through the engaging and inspiring world of their local library through an enthralling story, and learn about the importance of libraries in the process. 


"Not only were the children impressed, but the teachers who attended have not stopped raving about how amazing it was!"


Class Teacher, Saltdean Primary, Year 2



By the end of their session, children will have successfully joined their library membership scheme, received their membership card, and borrowed a book. Our aim is for children to feel ownership of their local library, to feel inspired by their books, and be excited to return to use the library into the future.



"The children have talked about it non-stop since
returning to school. We would love to arrange another
visit to the library to swap our books. Is it too short
notice to come down tomorrow so that the children
can have new books over the half term holiday?"


Class Teacher, St Bart's Primary
