About visiting us

Join us at your local library to find out how children can become members, how to get a class card, and to choose books to take back to school to enjoy.

We can offer fun activities, help children become confident library users, and keep you up to date about our upcoming events. And of course, we won’t let you leave without enjoying a story or two!

Request a school class visit

You can request to visit with a class using our online form below.

In the form we'll ask for your first, second and third preferred dates to visit. After submitting your request we'll check the availability and contact you to confirm the date we've been able to book for your visit. This will usually be within five working days.
