Welcome to the Children's Library

Our new Children's Library is open and ready for you to explore!  

December 2018 ushered in a new chapter in the Library's history - after two years of fundraising, the Children's Library was transformed into a magical world where children can learn, have fun and be inspired.
The new design evokes libraries of old, but with a distinctly modern twist. Artificial grass covers the floors, while comfy window seats overlook Market Square. With staircases and raised walkways leading to secret shelves and reading nooks, children can grab a book and quickly lose themselves in their imagination.
Come along and join the fun!
