Children and families

The Library Service in St Helens welcomes children and families and is free to join.

We offer an extensive range of books, resources, events and activities for parents and children of all ages. Find out how to join the library.

Read and Rhyme Times

Just 10 minutes a day reading with your child can help them to do better at school, so why not make using your library part of your routine and attend one of our regular Read and Rhyme Times? Find out when Read and Rhyme takes place at your library.

Summer Reading Challenge

Children can take part each year in the Summer Reading Challenge, gaining rewards and completing exciting activities while reading great books over the long summer break.

Special events 

Libraries offer hundreds of events for children throughout the year. 

Now is the time to visit your library to see what's on offer. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter or take a look at our What's On page.
