Dorset libraries are a gateway to fun exploration and learning that will last a lifetime!

From dragons, unicorns and mermaids to pirates, fairies and monsters - a wonderful world of adventure is waiting to be discovered at Dorset's libraries.

We can help with homework and learning but have a host of other books, DVDs, CDs and other resources especially for children plus lots of other events and activities.

It's free and easy to join at your local library and there are no overdue charges and a host of other benefits for child cardholders!
