Books and toys for your child

We have free resources and activities for children under five years old in our libraries and on our @BCPLibraries social media. Your child can get their own library card. This will allow for overdue books without big charges. 


We have a range of board books and picture books, and we regularly get new stock.

You can use your child’s library card to request books online. There’s no charge for this. Our library staff will let you know when your items can be collected.

Family-themed books

We have a collection of books on parenting and child development, and books which can help your child with issues such as dealing with emotions and new situations.
