Book Collections for Playgroups, Toddler Groups and Young People’s Centres
A personalised selection of books can be compiled by a member of Young People's Services, or if you prefer group leaders can visit Library Headquarters in person to choose their own.
Book collections are issued twice a year, once at the beginning of the school year in August then again at the beginning of the calendar year. Delivery is either directly to the group or via the local Community or Mobile Library (depending on the location of the group's premises). These are returned in the same way.
Groups that continue to run throughout the summer receive a reduced collection for the duration of the school holidays.
Collections can include:
- picture books
- board books
- topic books
- oversized story books
- books on first experiences
- books specially requested by the group
(NB This should be done in advance to ensure that we can satisfy the request).
