Inspiring children and young people to read
Our libraries have a wide range of story and information books to encourage a love of reading and learning in children.
Children are welcome at any age. It's free to join the library and to borrow books.
You can join online at www.librarieswest.org.uk or by calling in to your local library.
Children under 15 must have the permission of a parent or guardian to join. They'll need to come to the library with you on your first visit so they can sign your membership card and confirm that they're willing to be your guarantor.
The main Children's Library is in Bath Central Library, with an additional activity room for story and rhyme times and other events.
We've got fiction; non-fiction; board books; picture books; audio books and a fantastic collection of Young Adult reads.
All of our libraries have specific areas, items and computers for children, and run regular literacy-inspired activities.
