Benefits of using the library for children

The benefits of using a library for under-14s.

With your library card you can borrow:

  • books and comics
  • language courses
  • CDs
  • DVDs
  • Playstation games.

Joining the library is simple and free. You don’t even need to live in the borough. You'll need a parent or guardian to sign your application. 

The benefits

If you're under 14, you:

  • can reserve items that are on loan or at another library, absolutely free
  • don't have to pay fees for items that you return late.
