What is Library Time?

If you have young children to look after and entertain during the week, drop in to one of our new relaxed Library Time sessions. You'll receive a warm welcome.

Depending on the branch, there'll be toys, puppets, simple craft, and the chance to meet with other parents, carers and childminders. All our libraries offer a brilliant choice of new and classic books and picture books to browse, read and borrow. Bookstart Bear Club members can also get their passports stamped every time they visit.

If you or your children are not already members, it's free to join. Please remember to bring name/address ID.  Childminders can get their own card, please remember to bring your registration document as proof of status and can borrow an extra 12 books.

Do I need to book?

No booking required – just call in.
