Wollongong City Libraries run a variety of programs to introduce your child to the world of literature and reading. These programs range from babies to school aged children. 

We stock a variety of items including books, CDs, DVDs and magazines. If you need help with directions or assistance in locating particular items our staff are more than happy to assist you.

We provide a welcoming environment for families by providing attractive children's areas that are equipped with child size furniture, puzzles and board games. Children from as young as one day old can join our library service.

Please note that many of the kids programs are only run within school terms, see the programs description for more details.
