Our dedicated children’s library is a bright and welcoming space for babies, toddlers and younger children to explore and develop a love of reading for pleasure. It is well stocked with baby board books, picture books, early readers, chapter books and junior fiction.
New books are constantly arriving and if we don’t have what you want it’s free to order books in from other Swindon libraries on a children’s library card.
Need some help? Staff are on hand to discuss any questions you may have or suggest what to try next!
Our Young Adult teenage section is located in the adult library. While we only hold limited stock it is free to order in requests from other Swindon libraries on a YA library card.
Story, Rhyme & Craft
Story & Rhyme is a fun family session designed to encourage early literacy skills in babies and preschool children.
The first 30 minutes is a structured session of rhymes, songs and a story. Adults, your participation, and interaction with your child/children is required for you both to get the most out of the fun and learning!
If you would like to stay on for the crafts, we run a session for toddlers and pre-schoolers, or you can take a kit home. (There is a charge of £1 on the day towards the cost of materials).
