LIBRARY SERVICES FOR CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE

Reading to your child will give them a head-start at school and a flying start in life. Reading increases language skills and will help your child to be a more confident, inquisitive learner. So whether your child's reading journey has just started or they're well on their way, come in for a visit - you be amazed at what you'll find!

Our youngest readers are so important to us that we give them a very special First Library Card featuring Hamish the Bear. It's easy to join the library, just drop into your nearest East Renfrewshire Library with some identification or complete the online joining form and start your child on the road to a lifelong love of books and libraries.

With touch and feel books, board books and picture books, Bookbug and storytelling sessions, your child is never too young to join the library.

What we offer:

  • Early years - Picture books, Bookbug and storytimes
  • School Children - A collection of books of all ages, reading challenges, activities and homework help
  • Teenage - A great selection of young adult books and learning resources
  • Children's eBooks and eAudiobooks - Great for reading and listening to on the go.
  • Britannica Online - A superb, authoritative online resource to support homework and learning
  • Children's services for grown-ups - Resources to support parents, carers and childcare providers.
