Books and Audio for Children and Young People

We have a dedicated childrens area in our library where there are a wealth of childrens story books, activity books, and wide range of both fiction and non-fiction from toddler to teen. We also have a weekly Reading and Rhymes storytelling sessions held every Friday morning between 10:00 and 11:30, after which mums and dads can enjoy coffee and biscuits.
