Wake up, roll out of bed, and join East Riding Libraries for a magical day in pyjamas! This June, they will be celebrating BookTrust’s Pyjamarama, a new campaign to help all children experience the joy and wonder of bedtime stories.

Many libraries across the East Riding will be taking part with their very own pyjama party, full of fun story-time activities for 0-5s. Children who attend the event will receive a free copy of the picture book Car, Car, Truck, Jeep by Katrina Charman and Nick Sharratt – a story to share together at home. The reading charity BookTrust, supported by Bloomsbury Children’s Books, has 445,000 copies to give away.

Librarian Kimberley Harston said : “Pop on your favourite PJs, onesie or comfy outfit and bring your little ones along to East Riding Libraries!”.

Booking is advisable – contact your local library.
