    The current guide, for January to March 2013, gives you information about books, events, courses and web sites that are useful for children, mums and dads too.

    Whether you want a course to help you get on top of your finances, a book launch event about Serbian Fairy Tales or a cartoon Comic Lab – then the new guide is for you.

    Get the most from your library for the whole family by viewing, printing or downloading your own guide here…

    Reading this Autumn

    autumnLeafPic89Did you know that children can borrow up to 15 books and 6 junior CD’s for free from the Borough Library Service?

    Your local library offers not ony access to books, but also to computer learning facilties, story-telling and craft activities, as well as home work clubs and holiday activities.

    For younger children, your local library is a great place to check out the Bookstart programme – designed to offer every child a pack of free books and fun materials about reading.

    If you haven’t yet, take a leaf out of our book – get down to your local library this Autumn and join in the fun.

    You can find more information about children’s book services in the borough here.

    Advice about how to join your library can be found here, including how to join on-line too. Happy reading…
