Your baby can join the library from the day he or she is born - free of charge. You can borrow books and story and music tapes as well.
Its enjoying sharing books that are important – and don't worry about accidental damage. We won't charge you for books accidentally damaged by babies and toddlers and we don't fine you for overdue children's books either.
If you would like your baby to become a member of the library just call in to your local library. You will be asked to complete a short application form providing your baby's name, address, date of birth and your signature.
