• Books for toddlers - many with bilingual text - Welsh and English. Remember that we do not charge if they are damaged accidentally by small children.Join in the 'Clwb Cropian' which is available in each library where there is a chance to collect colourful certificates and a little teddy bear for your child by working your way through books! 
• Books and songs on tape/CD
• First books for Starting to Learn to Read - there is a blue sticker on these
• Story sacks  - there are collections at Caernarfon, Bangor, Pwllheli, Blaenau and Tywyn Libraries, but you can ask for them from any library. For a list of available sacks, have a look at the library's Catalogue and type in story sack as the key word.
• Short novels aimed at Yrs 3 and 4 – there is a green sticker on these
• Large print English books for children
• DVDs for a small charge per week

Each library in Gwynedd welcomes toddlers and small children and also welcomes breastfeeding. In some libraries there are changing facilities, and there are toys available for children to play with in the larger libraries.
