Children’s Library

Welcome to The Children’s Library

In each of our 5 Libraries as well as on our School Mobile Library Service you will find a whole range of wonderful books, from Bedtime Stories to History Books to help with Homework and everything in between.

You will notice that when you pick up a book it may have a Coloured Circle on the side of the book. If it has then it is a Story Book or what’s also known as a ‘Fiction Book’. Children’s Guide to the Library (Adobe PDF, 821kb)
