Discover Our Sensory Garden

Step outside at the back of the library. We've created a garden to inspire your senses. Take in the heady aroma of the many varieties of basil in full bloom. See the beautiful reds and purples  in the leaves of the Thai basil. Pick some leaves and smell the amazing scent. Walk the paths in the cool of the morning while the earth is still damp. Look up through the dappled light at the wonder of the giant, golden sunflowers smiling out at you. Identify the many herbs. Pick them, smell them, eat them. Enjoy.



Spend some time outside with butterflies, ladybirds and beetles. See the vibrant colours. Listen to the crickets. The sound of the wind in the trees. Breath in the beautiful scented air. Explore your senses.

Listening to Scent

The library has some refreshing books to help your children grow their own patch of earth
