What we have for children in libraries

All our libraries have a special section for children where you can relax and enjoy looking for new books, DVDs and audio books. There are books for all ages. Look for your favourite author or find exciting facts in the information books. Why not take a closer look at what we have to offer?

All our libraries hold activities in the school holidays. Look out for the Summer Reading Challenge for 4-12 year olds every summer holiday.

If you have a baby or toddler, you can now pick up your free Bookstart packs in our libraries too - just ask at your local library.

  • Picture books
  • Easy stories for children beginning to read by themselves
  • Stories for all ages

  • Reference books, for example, encyclopaedias and dictionaries which can only be used in the library

  • Computers for internet access, email and homework
  • Staff to help you
