Playgroups & Classes Harrogate

Free groups

Bilton & Woodfield Community Library host a Storytime for pre-school children every Tuesday – even in the school holidays!

Really lovely atmosphere, very welcoming & friendly, and the children love it.

We’re pleased to announce details of our under 5s activities week.

All sessions are free – we just ask that the child participating is a member of the library.

If they don’t have a library card, they can get one on the day of the activity. Parents/carers are welcome to join the library too!

For activities that require booking, please contact the library 01609 536658 or to book.

There is also lots of information on our facebook page.

At 2pm on Wednesdays during term-time bring your little ones to enjoy an enchanting story together in The Circle Bar.


With a friendly atmosphere, stories to entertain, quality drinks and mouth-watering cakes there’s nowhere better to be on a Wednesday afternoon.


There’s a new story every week, it’s free and there’s no need to book. To make things easier we’ve got baby changing in both male and female toilets, we’re breast feeding friendly and we can heat up milk for bottles. Refreshments are available to purchase.


Please note access is via stairs only, you are welcome to leave your pushchair in the foyer at your own risk. Children can not be left unattended.
