Library services for children and young people
Children of any age can join the library and get involved.
Each library has:
- a special area for children with picture books through to teenage novels
- a wide range of information books to help with homework or projects
- computers, internet access and free printing during homework club
- books and DVDs to hire
- regular events as well as special holiday events and an annual summer book challenge
Please note: children under 8 must be accompanied by a responsible parent or carer at all times.
Bookstart aim to provide a free pack of books to every baby and toddler in the UK, to inspire, stimulate and create a love of reading that will give all children a real flying start in life. But most of all, we want to show that books are fun!
A baby pack is gifted to all babies at around 6 to 9 months and an early years pack to all toddlers at around two years old. Packs are gifted by Health Visitors.
If you haven't received a pack for your child please contact your Health Visitor or your local library.
