Children and young people's library services

Activities and learning for children during lockdown

We understand that children and parents will be looking for activities and learning opportunities while children are at home.  Barnet Libraries have put together some websites to help. For five to eleven year olds and for teenagers.

We are working on plans for more online library services so please check here regularly for more information.

Silly Squad, Summer Reading challenge 2020 has begun! 

This year, with the disruption caused by Covid-19 and the impact of social distancing on schools and public libraries, the all-new digital Summer Reading Challenge is launching earlier than usual to keep children reading over the summer and support parents and carers with children already at home.

Children's eBooks and eAudiobooks

We have a large and exciting collection of children's eBooks and eAudiobooks available via our free Libby and Borrowbox platforms.
