Come Say ‘Hallo’, ‘Hola’ or Just ‘Hello’ at High Life Highland Libraries During Bookbug Week!

An annual celebration of songs, stories and rhymes, Bookbug Week gets underway next week with a whole host of activities happening across High Life Highland libraries.

National Bookbug Week takes place from 13th May – 19th May, with this year’s theme being all about saying ‘hello’ in recognition of the many different languages spoken by families across Scotland.

Aimed at little ones aged from 0-5 years old, High Life Highland Bookbug sessions are always welcoming and lively gatherings and in a nod to this year’s theme, Bookbug leaders will be encouraging everyone to say ‘hello’ in any language they wish but with a particular focus on Gaelic, French, Spanish and German.

Elizabeth Parker, Senior Network Librarian with High Life Highland said:

“We would love lots of families to join us during Bookbug week to say ‘halò’, ‘bonjour’, ‘hola’ or ‘hallo’.

“Our Bookbug sessions are always very popular and are of great benefit to families with the songs and rhymes helping grown-ups strengthen relationships with their little ones as well as providing an important opportunity for socialising and spending time with other families.

“All it takes is to say ‘Hello’!”
