From tots to teens, your local library has something to offer all children and young people. From books to read enjoy, to weekly and holiday based activities for all ages.
Children can have their own library card from the day they are born, it's free to join and to borrow books and you can't start too soon! Studies have shown that just 10 minutes reading a day can dramatically improve your child's lifelong language, literacy and numeracy skills.
Reading, Learning and Activities for Children of All Ages
All City Libraries have a wide range of children's books available to borrow and enjoy, they can all be reserved and renewed online. Each library also has a children's area full of inspiration for young readers plus toys and activities for families to share and enjoy.
For older children there are teen areas in most libraries and young people have helped to choose books for their age groups. From academic, fiction or graphic novels, young people have a variety of choice.
