Booking Your Child’s Future
Imagine not talking to your child until they can speak – childcare experts compare this to holding back on books until they can read.
It’s a fact that introducing your child to books at an early age can help them to…
- develop their speech and language
- read more quickly at school
- become more confident with numbers.
Where better to start than the library?
- it’s a great place to nurture your child’s interest in books
- children of all ages are welcome from new-borns through to teens
- it’s FREE for you and your child to join
- it has books for babies and young children, including:
- board books
- picture books
- and you can borrow up to 24 books for up to 3 weeks!
Plus, the library has lots of FREE reading activities and schemes for different ages, including …
- Wriggly Readers - fun sessions with storytelling, songs and rhymes for under 4s and their parents/carers.
Joining your child to the library is easy!
- Just call into your nearest library with some identification for yourself and then baby/toddler can borrow up to 24 books straight away.
- all new joiners get a free colourful library pack full of helpful information about your library.
Don’t worry if…
- your baby chews a book – we won’t make a fuss
- your baby makes a noise in the library – libraries are no longer “silent”!
- if you return books late – there’s nothing to pay for children under 11.
