New in the Children's Library

Who is Greta Thunberg? Where does my plastic toothbrush end up? Why do some women wear hijab? What is consent? What's the difference between a paddle crab and a hermit crab? Our wide and ever growing range of children's books addresses many of the questions children, both young and old, might be asking today. Check out these shiny new children's books which delve into some important topics with a light touch.

February Newsletter

It's the last month of summer and there are plenty of reasons to visit the library. This month we will wrap up the Nelson Summer Reading Challenge. Time to read those last few chapters, cross off the last few books on your Bingo card and complete your check-ins. Save the date! On 14 February - Library Lovers' Day - we will be celebrating our reading challenges, handing out prizes and listening to some great music from Gitano Swing and the Anna, Juliet & Lissa Trio. In February we also return to our regular term time programmes. We hope to see you at a small time, story time or maybe a robotics session!
