Everything for Kids is kept in the Children's Section of the Library. We have a great selection of Books, DVDs and Audiobooks for Children.
We group different types of items in the following areas:
These books for our youngest members are made of sturdy board so that they cannot be damaged by children who are learning to turn pages. We keep the board books in a book box at floor level so young children can reach and touch the books themselves. They are also keep conveniently close to the toybox.
These hard-wearing books are ideal for children 0-2 years old.
In the Kid's Area there is a large selection of books with lots of Pictures. We keep them in book boxes at floor level so they are easy for children to flick through and select the items they wish to borrow.
