Take out some books
How to: Choose some books for chill-out time together. If you’re not sure what to look for, ask the librarian or check out our book lists
for some great recommendations from Scottish Book Trust.
Fill out the membership form together
How to: Visit your local library – or apply online – to get your child a free library card. Have your child help you fill out the form with their name, age and address details.
Talk about a book and its characters
How to: Take it in turns to read a short story to each other. When you’ve finished, talk about what happened in the book and ask your child questions like ‘Who was your favourite character?’ and ‘Which part was the most exciting?’
