Live Life Aberdeenshire Libraries celebrate Bookbug Week 2021!

This week we celebrate Bookbug Week 2021! We’ll be celebrating everything water-based from seaside books, fishy books, drop-them-in-the-bath-books, to things we like doing outdoors (splashing in puddles is Bookbug’s favourite!).

Scottish Book Trust have a jam-packed week in store for you. There will be competitions, activities, and giveaways galore, and lots of things you can join in with either at home or in your early years setting.

Visit Scottish Book Trust for more information: Scottish Book Trust Bookbug Week
