Children's Room

Rediscover the magic of childhood

Kids - we have a special room with books, toys and beanbags for you and your big people. 
"The more that you read, the more you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go." - Dr Seuss, ref:

Must-haves for little libraries
Books make wonderful gifts for newborns, birthdays, and new and expectant parents.
Just as there are adult ‘classics’ in literature that have stood the test of time, so too with children’s books. How many people still have their favourite childhood books?
Need some recommendations? Email or call 03 477 6976.

Story-time: every Friday at 10.30am and Saturday at 10.30am
Our inviting Children’s Room is a great space for younger bookworms and their families. With comfy bean bags, and story-time (complete with music, singalongs and craft activities) you really can rediscover the magic of childhood.
We are always happy to host pre-school and classroom groups for story-time. Who knows, a special character may even come along... Email or call 03 477 6976

Join our Magic Book Chat - a book club for kids ages 7-12

Come and share your love of reading with other enthusiastic book worms! We meet on the last Monday of each month to chew the fat about a set book each month in two groups - 7-9 year olds and 10-12 year olds. Register your young book-lover for our Magic Book Chat at

Reading is, after all, the only extra-curricular activity at age 16 that links to future academic and professional success! (Read more about the Oxford University study.)
