Children and Young People


Welcome to the Children and Young people page.  We have everything here from homework and study help, to information about reading groups and competitions.

In our recent survey, children and young people told us why they loved their libraries:

'In the library I get to read different books than what I would choose at school'

'The library has helped me to talk to new people and love books'.
