    Find free activities for kids

    It may have been a few years since you’ve visited, but if you have kids then libraries are an absolute must!

    Warwickshire is full of amazing libraries with weekly events especially for the kids. Whether it’s stories, nursery rhymes, coding or Lego that they are into, there’s something for all ages.

    So if you are looking for what’s on for children in Warwickshire, your nearest library is definitely a good place to look.

    Freebies from Warwickshire Libraries

    Apart from tonnes of books for all ages and interests, events for children are typically free, or at least very cheap. We all know how keeping the kids busy can start to add up! Even better, weekly classes tend to run during term-time, but some groups and special events also run throughout school holidays.

    Above all, you don’t need to be a member of a library to take part either. If you do want to join a library for your children up however, that’s also free too.

    Once they are members, there are a whole load of resources for children. Children can borrow up to ten books at one time, CDs, audio books, games and DVDs for instance. They can also request and reserve books for free, and keep them for out longer than adults.

    Free weekly activities for under 5s

    As big fans of the weekly activities at our local library, we therefore wanted to help you find your nearest.
