What's on in libraries

Sunderland Libraries have worked with Sunderland Music Hub and Together for Children to produce a Christmas story video for your little ones to enjoy over the festive season.

While our Library buildings are currently closed children can access e-books and e-audiobooks via BorrowBox - for further information click here https://www.sunderland.gov.uk/libraries/opac

Our libraries regularly hold activities and events:

Story Explorers

Sunderland Music Hub, Sunderland Libraries Services and Sunderland Museum and Winter Gardens are delighted to share with you their joint project, Story Explorers.

Story Explorers is a project for children aged 6 and under, created during lockdown when children, their families and carers are unable to visit their favourite Sunderland venues. Story Explorers brings together storytelling and singalongs with some of the wonderful collections at Sunderland Libraries Services and Sunderland Museum and Winter Gardens.

This project has been supported using public funding from  Sunderland Music Hub through Department for Education and Arts Council England, Sunderland City Council and Sunderland Libraries Services and Sunderland Culture through Arts Council England.
