The Reading Caterpillar Library is unique as it focuses on young children. We have a fantastic selection of books and are constantly expanding our shelves!
We have built a collection of books unique in their stories, language and illustrations. Our books include best sellers and award winning books in the Children’s category, Modern Classics, Picture books,Young Fiction, Multilingual Books (English, Spanish, French, and Hindi), Folk Tales from different countries, Popular Characters and series and many more books. We also have a special section of reference books for parents and teachers.
Each book is handpicked, we love our books and hope that all our young members do so too! You can borrow, read or simply sit and doodle in the reading room. As a Library member you will get invitations to attend the ‘Members Only’ events, and ‘Members Special Fee’ events and workshops at the Studio.We host community events at the library and we invite you to join us for have a day at the library as a volunteer.
