Bookbug in Renfrewshire is managed by the Library Service and works in partnership with local health visitors, nursery teachers, childminders and representatives for the Childcare Partnership. There is also input from the local Adult Literacy Project.


Bookbug Bag Gifting

The Bookbug Baby Bags are distributed to parents by their Health Visitor.

The Bookbug Toddler Bags are distributed to parents by libraries or health visitors.

The Bookbug Explorer Bags are distributed to 3 year olds through nurseries and other early years settings.


Bookbug’s Library Challenge

Bookbug’s Library Challenge, a free programme where pre-school children can collect stickers and certificates in return for borrowing books from the library, runs in some libraries throughout Renfrewshire.  Each child is given their own Bookbug’s Library Challenge collector card and each time they visit the library they receive a sticker. When they have collected 4 stickers they will receive a lovely limited edition certificate.


Bookbug Sessions

Within Renfrewshire, free Bookbug Sessions are held in several libraries across the authority.  Bookbug Sessions are fun, free events for children aged birth to four and their parents, incorporating songs, rhymes, books and play.
