If that's yes - do you know if they've had their Baby Pack or Treasure Pack? Unfortunately because of the pandemic, not everyone has had their pack. You can request either pack by emailing us at We’re not able to post packs out but will send packs to your local Birmingham Library for you to collect from them. We may not be able to deliver packs to libraries during November and December as part of the second lockdown but please do still contact us so we can send packs out at a later date. Find out how Bookstart operates in Birmingham.

In the meantime, Birmingham Libraries are operating an Order and Collect service and we have lots of books for children, including some of the types of books you’ll find in your Baby or Treasure Packs. You can browse a selection of picture books for babies and young children in our catalogue.
