Welcome to a World of Discovery

From babies and toddlers through to children and teens, Libraries NI offers countless ways to engage young minds in fun ways.

There are 96 public libraries across Northern Ireland and you can search to find the nearest to you.

Children of any age can join the library and babies can join the day they are born.  Just fill in a form and show us proof of identity with an address to get your child a library card. 

All through the year, there are events, author visits, competitions and activities taking place in Northern Ireland’s public libraries – ask staff, keep a look out for posters or search the events calendar for details.
