Christmas with South Tyneside Libraries

Join in the festive fun with South Tyneside Libraries this December!

Live storytelling every Thursday

Every Thursday afternoon at 2pm throughout December you can join library staff live on Facebook as they read festive stories. This will be perfect to entertain young children.

Each week the staff will choose a different Christmas-themed children's story for you to enjoy.

To join in these sessions, follow South Tyneside Libraries Facebook.


There will also be a series of Christmas Craft tutorials available on South Tyneside Libraries Facebook across December for you to do at home with the family.

Festive library loans and recommendations

You can use the libraries in the run-up to Christmas to take out festive books from children's tales, adult fiction, recipe books for the perfect Christmas feast and more.

If you're unsure exactly what books you want to loan, give the libraries a call and get the staff's recommendations.

We will also be recommending some of our favourite festive books on South Tyneside Libraries Facebook.

We are currently offering a collection service from:

  • The Word - 0191 427 1818
  • Jarrow Focus - 0191 489 7786
