Reading for pleasure

Our libraries are the perfect place to support children reading for pleasure. With 1000s of titles in stock, all free to borrow and reserve, there's something for every kind of reader.

Children who read for pleasure are likely to do significantly better at school than their peers, have higher levels of self-esteem and a greater ability to cope with difficult situations.
