Library book order and collect service

Find out how to order and collect books whilst we remain closed. For all other service changes, go to our service updates page.

Toddler Time

We hold these weekly drop in sessions in our libraries for parents/carers and their pre-school children to stay and play with toys and puppets, enjoy storytelling, join in with rhymes and singing and take part in creative activities. Toddler time is friendly, fun and free!

We even have assistants who can help with choosing books.

Please note that due to a high increase in numbers, Braunstone, Hamilton and St Barnabas Libraries run two sessions (alternating on a weekly basis), depending on the age of your child (23 months and under, and 2 years and over). Please contact the relevant library directly for more information.
