Services for 5 and under
Library services for children aged 5 and under
What does Inverclyde Libraries have for 0-5 year olds?
Libraries Welcome Families
You’re never too young to get a library card. We want every child to be a library member so you can sign your child up for membership from birth!
Come along with your child to see how the library works – you’ll find that nobody says ‘shhhh’ in libraries anymore!
Lots of Books
All libraries have an excellent selection of board and picture books which have been specially selected for 0-5 year olds.
You can borrow 20 books at a time at no cost and we do not charge children for overdue books if you keep them a little bit longer!
Reading books with your child is a great way to bond and build attachment, boost vocabulary and develop emotional wellbeing. Plus, it’s good fun!
Toys for Play
We have a good variety of toys in all libraries. Children can play while parents pick books or have a time-out with a hot drink from our machines.
Some of our libraries have ipads with age-appropriate apps for children to access during library visits.
All libraries have weekly Bookbug Sessions which are free, friendly, fun sessions of songs, rhymes and stories for babies, toddlers, pre-schoolers and their families and carers to enjoy together.
Inverclyde Libraries want to make our services as accessible as possible for everyone. We hold a range of sensory equipment for use in the library as detailed on our Au-some Libraries page and have adaptive technology suited to a wide range of needs, for further information visit our Accessibility page.
