Children's library services

Barnet libraries welcomes children from birth onwards - even babies can join! There is something for everyone from books for children just beginning to read, materials for teenagers and resources to support study, plus a wealth of events and activities.

To become a member you will just need to complete a short form (signed by parents/ carers for children under 16 years old) and show us one form of identification featuring your address.

We also have a range of e-books and e-audio books in our digital library that you can download from home, along with over 300 encyclopaedias that will help with homework and study.
