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.

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 events
