Library events for young people

Find out about events and activities for young people taking place in the libraries.

Story time

Each library holds a weekly story time for under 6s. They are free and booking is not required.

Baby Rhyme Time

These free baby bounce and rhyme sessions are for very young children accompanied by adults.

Come join in the fun with songs, rhymes and stories - all are welcome.


If you live in the borough (or attend school here) and like books, read on! At these popular groups for 8 to 10 year olds we chat about books, play games and do quizzes. It is a great way to discover new authors and make new booky friends.

Chatterbooks groups meet once a month after school (term time only) and last about an hour.

Register your interest in our new monthly 11-14's book group!

Join our teen reading group to discover fantastic new books and authors, write your own short stories and poetry, make new friends and get to grips with graphic novels and manga.
