Join your local library
The ideal place to find more books for your child
A message from libraries in Wales
Your local library is the ideal place to find more books to introduce to your child. You will find a wide choice which includes colourful board books with just a few words, books on colours and shapes, rhyme books, and picture books with longer stories.
Even the smallest child can become a member of a library and it doesn't cost anything to join. Many libraries will hold Rhymetimes and story times, which are a great way for mums, dads and carers to meet and share songs, stories and rhymes.
Here to help
Being a parent is a tough job and any help is welcome – your local library will also have books which can give help and advice. Ask us for books on issues which affect parents of small children, including
- toilet training
- dealing with tantrums
- developing good sleep patterns.
Remember: libraries welcome small children and we don't say shhh! anymore!
