Online and telephone payments

Due to essential maintenance, telephone and online payments will not be available between 8am and 6pm on Tuesday 24 April. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.

Arranging your visit

Your school is welcome to visit any time. We ask that all schools and groups register their visit in advance, and will tell you if other schools/groups have already booked for the same day/time.

Please allow 4 weeks' notice where possible.

Your visit is not booked in until you receive a confirmation email.

Begin online form

Ensure your group has their library cards with them so they can borrow items. Any children who wish to join must have signed parental permission. Adults will need to provide name and address identification.

The Children’s Library will join as many children as they can during the visit. To ensure that all library cards are ready on the day, please provide completed forms (one per child) at least two weeks prior to your visit. Forms are available at any Birmingham library or you can download and print copies of the form.
