  • Next Wednesday (10 April, 2:30pm – 3:30pm), Stroud Green and Harringay Library will play host to a Easter Comic Crafts activity, with participants drawing some cartoon animals or people using simple shapes. Circles, ovals and curves will be the shapes used during Wednesday’s session and there shall be some easy-to-follow examples demonstrated by library staff to get the creative, illustrative juices flowing!
  • Next Saturday morning (13 April, 10:30am – 11:30am), there’s a ‘Rhymes and Raagas: Indian Music for Babies and Tots’ event at St Ann’s Library, where delightful melodies and rhythms from India will be interwoven into playful nursery rhymes. Children and carers/parents can sing, play percussion, count and dance along while the youngsters enhance their cognitive development, social skills, sense of rhythm, pitch, counting, colours and more. You and your little ones can unwind too with the soothing sounds of the sitar and raagas* (*Indian musical patterns). For further information, please email:
