Libraries What we have for children in libraries

Resources for parents, carers and teachers

If you look after a lot of children, we have:
  • block loan tickets, these are special library cards for playgroups, nurseries, childminders, teachers etc. that allow you to borrow up to 30 books and keep them for 6 weeks.
  • library visits or special storytimes that can be arranged for groups of children or school classes.

Some libraries have parent and carer collections that contain a range of books with tips on childcare, health matters, situation picture books. There are also books on fun things like, how to decorate your children's room, make a birthday cake, or give a fancy dress party.
