Children who read for pleasure are likely to do significantly better at school than their peers, according to research from the Institute of Education (IOE) 2013.
We believe that reading for pleasure can help children in all aspects of their life. We have a large selection of titles to suit children and young people including all the latest fiction, stories by your favourite authors, old favourites and information books. One of the many benefits of using your local library is that you can try out a title for free! It’s a great way to discover your children’s reading likes and dislikes!
Our aim is to encourage children and young people to become regular library users. There is no minimum age for joining the library and, if you can’t find the title you’re looking for on our bookshelves we will do our best to find it for you as quickly as possible.
We also work with other organisations to arrange fun literary community events. Details of these events can be found here (link to what’s on) or you can keep up to date via our social media: Twitter @BridgendLibs and Facebook /BridgendLibraries
