Kids

Mum and daughter reading

Using the library with children is a great way to support and encourage a love of reading and books.

You and your child can access a range of resources, to borrow from our libraries or by downloading and streaming.

If you haven't tuned in to one of our Virtual Storytimes, you're missing out! Watch a selection now on our YouTube channel, or follow us on Facebook for new storytimes as they're released.
