Services for young readers Services for young readers


At Kingston Libraries we have lots of activities for children from 0 – 16 all year round.
All 7 libraries in Kingston have areas specifically for children. Find out here about library services for you and your family.
Joining the library is simple and free. You don’t even need to live in Kingston. You will need a parent or guardian to sign your application. With your library card you can borrow books and CDs.



Benefits for children

  • Free reservations – children and teen items that are on loan or at another library, can be reserved absolutely free.
  • No fines – for teens and childrens items there are no late fees. (A very overdue notice charge will still apply).
