Help with reading, writing and using numbers

The Library has plenty of resources to help children develop their reading, writing and ability with numbers, from ABC and 123 for young children to books on maths and grammar which support the school curriculum.

Children of all ages can develop their reading with library books, building up from picture books with no words to books with short chapters, in easy read formats and beyond.

We have a good choice of CD-Roms to help with writing and using numbers.

Our friendly, experienced librarians are on hand to support you and your child through their learning journey. We understand that not all children find learning easy and we warmly welcome those who need extra help or are reluctant or less confident learners.

Support for parents and carers is available too. This includes the Parents’ Collection of books and resources offering guidance, ideas and activities to help you support your child’s learning, health and development.

Why not bring your child along to story time and other free events at the Children’s Library? Fun for children and a great way for you to pick up story-telling and general tips to help make learning enjoyable!
