The Children's Library at Central Library

We have existing news and updates for you. The Children’s Library is currently being modernised and improved and the work will be complete by Christmas 2021 ready for everyone to use. The Children’s Library will therefore be unavailable until that time. 

However, children’s books are still available from nearby the children’s library and storytime sessions will still take place.

A children’s area with a difference - it's themed on the Secret Garden by local author, Frances Hodgson Burnet.  Spot the animals that pop out from the undergrowth on our digital wall display, or see yourself in the centre of our garden in the special projection area.

We have seating and cushions for you to curl up with your children and a book, and computers close at hand.  All the computers across the complex can be used by children, so you can find an area that suits you.

We have baby changing facilities, a nursing room and a cafe.
