Children and Young People at The Library

All Glasgow Libraries have bright colourful children’s areas where you can find lots of great books, magazines, Junior Collection DVDs, plus computers for free internet access and CD-ROMs.

Glasgow Libraries are very family-oriented and offer lots of activities to get everyone involved from special holiday events to regular events for children from toddlers to young adults. 

Joining the library couldn’t be easier simply pick up a Membership Form from your local library and have a parent or guardian sign the form after you have filled it in.

Our library staff will be happy to show you around the library or why don’t you speak to your teacher to arrange a class visit for a tour of the library?

Reading Programmes for Children

Visit our What's On Section to find out about the reading programmes which take place throughout the year for children and young people.

Don’t worry we haven’t forgotten about mum and dad – each library has a Parents' collection where you’ll find lots of books that can help you care for yourself and your family. The Positive Parenting Programme is also a series of regular events for parents.
