Children, young people and families

Every Child a Library Member

You can register your child for a library membership online. Once you have signed up online, your child will have access to our ebooks and audiobooks.

When you first visit the library you can collect your library card, enjoy book borrowing and meet our friendly library staff.

Libraries can support you and your child by providing:

  • A safe and trusted space for you and your little one to explore together
  • Advice on how sharing books together helps you and your baby to bond and develop vital early literacy skills
  • Access to a wide range of free, quality books for babies and for the whole family as well as educational toys
  • Free Wi-fi and PCs as well as digital support and signposting to other support services in the community
