Children's library services

Love reading, love libraries

Our libraries have books for children and young people of all ages and abilities, from the latest best sellers to classic stories, books for children learning to read and those that struggle. We also have lots of information books to help with learning and interests. All of these books can be borrowed for free. If your local library does not have the children's book you are looking for we can usually get it in from another library, just ask the staff if you can request a book - it's free.

A place where children can have fun and learn things

Our libraries also offer free activities for children throughout the year, including rhyme times for babies and toddlers and the Summer Reading Challenge for four to 11 year olds

Children can use the computers (with parent’s permission), ask about booking a session. All libraries offer Wifi too.

We also have stories on CD that children can borrow and film and TV programmes which can be hired.

Joining the library is free and you can even join online from home, children under 16 need an adult guarantor.

Our friendly and welcoming staff are happy to help you and your family whatever your needs - we look forward to seeing you soon
