What's in your library

Bookstart for 0 to 5 year olds

You can collect a free Bookstart baby pack from your health visitor at your baby's health check between the ages of 6 weeks to 8 weeks.

The baby pack includes:

  • a free board book
  • a rhyme sheet
  • a booklet of tips and ideas for sharing books with children from a very young age

We can provide a range of dual language books suitable for 3 year-olds and 4 year-olds.

If you are a child minder or work in an early years setting, contact Grays library for attention of the Children's Team to ask about:

  • packs suitable for babies and pre-school children with hearing impairment or visual impairment
  • packs for children aged 3 years-old and over with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND)

No-one is too young to have a library card – go to joining the library.
