Orders and delivery

Individuals – treasure packs and baby packs

Bookstart Birmingham is unable to post individual packs to home addresses. This includes home educators and childminders. Individual packs will be sent to your preferred Birmingham Library for collection.

We are currently also sending Treasure Packs and Baby Packs to children’s centres. You are welcome to collect your pack from your local centre. Please remember though, children should only have one of each pack, that is: one Baby Pack and one Treasure Pack.

If your child hasn’t had either of these packs, see page 5.

If your child has additional needs, see page 4.
