Human Libraries

Human Libraries is a programme of artist-led workshops, projects, commissions and happenings in Bootle and Crosby Libraries. The team believe that everyone has "gifts of the heart, the head and the hand" to offer to their community. Through artist-led activities, the Human Library creates ways for people to share these gifts.

If your child has missed receiving their FREE Bookstart pack because of lockdown, please contact and ask for a pack to be sent to your nearest library for you to collect.

The baby pack is gifted at 7-9 months, usually by your health visitor. 

The treasure pack is usually gifted when your child is 3-4 years, just prior to them going into reception.

Please don't let your child miss out!

Libraries understand the importance of enjoying stories together.
