Looking for things to do with your preschooler or child? Make sure to check out your local library in Meath and find out what classes and events that they run throughout the year.
Your local library branch is a wonderful – and free – resource for families. Many of the branches run parent and toddler groups, storytelling sessions, arts and crafts classes, book clubs, chess clubs, games and activities sessions and so on. Not to mention the fact that there is free computer access and the option to borrow books and DVDs!
Here is a list of the Meath libraries branches that are currently offering storytelling sessions for smallies:
