Children’s Collection

Welcome to the children’s collection of The Morrab Library! We have over 800 children’s books available for members to borrow. These range from childhood classics (with many illustrated or first editions) such as The Jungle Book, The Secret Garden, Paddington and Peter Pan to the works of contemporary authors like J K Rowling, Chris Higgins, Andy Stanton, Cressida Cowell, Jon Klassen and Lauren Child. We’ve some lovely picture books for very young ones as well as stories for older children. We also have a young adults section and a selection of non-fiction books that cover a range of topics.


Feel free to browse the children’s section when you’re next at the library or, if you have a particular publication in mind, you can now search the children’s collection online – simply click on the link below.


Happy reading!

It’s like a museum and a library and it’s full of books that tell you about everything. You never know what you will find. I love it and I want it all to myself!!

I really like it and I’d like to go there lots of times.

Molly says she doesn’t like to give back her old books, but “I like the new books on shelves, choose them, stamp them and on my arm, stamp here and here!” (points to arm and hand). She agreed that she likes hearing stories “and colouring and sweets” (peppermint creams?) and she likes the grown ups at the library.


I love how welcoming the library has always been to us as a family, both you librarians and the other members. You always have beautiful books for Molly to choose from and she LOVES reading her library books at home. She really doesn’t like bringing them back, but loves coming home and taking her new treasures out of her library book bag. It is a magical place.
