Summary

We are looking for volunteers to lead our Bounce & Rhyme sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9.30am - 10.15am.

Detailed description

Bounce and Rhyme Time is a weekly session for parents and pre-school children run within each of our 47 Norfolk Libraries. The session aims are to encourage parents and carers to share songs and rhymes with their children, through a 20 minute long group session at the library. The sessions also provide a safe space for parents to ask questions about anything they have concerns about, find information and meet other parents.

 

The principles of the sessions are:

 

  • To build parents confidence in encouraging their child’s literacy
  • To offer a weekly session of songs and rhymes for children to enjoy
  • To offer a safe space for parents to ask questions
  • To be able to link parents to relevant information and services


The core aims of the role are:

 

  • To prepare songs, stories and rhymes for a 15-20 minute session delivered within a library
  • To attend at a regular time each week and lead the singing of rhymes and songs
  • To work with the Library Manager as necessary regarding the preparation and delivery of the session
  • To occasionally help make parents aware of other services for children that are also available within the library or signpost queries to staff
  • To occasionally promote joining the library and the Bookstart scheme available to families
  • To encourage parents and carers to visit the library and borrow books to share at home
  • To encourage people from a wide range of backgrounds to participate in sessions through the selection of songs and rhymes that reflect a range of different cultures


Volunteers should have the following skills:


  • Good communication skills  
  • Ability to provide a friendly, approachable and professional customer service
