Families and Junior Members
Please note that our programmes are all online during our temporary closure
We run a monthly Saturday morning club for Junior Members aged 5-8 and their adults. Bookworms takes place on the third Saturday of the month at 10.30 am – 12 noon, this session is now repeated between 2.00 – 3.30 pm due to it’s popularity. Please see our Bookworms page for the current programme.
Saturdays at the Institution
We are open on Saturdays and many of our activities are family friendly, free and open to all. Please see our Saturday page for the current programme.
Children and young people under 18 are able to join the Institution as Junior Members for just £1 per month (£12 annual membership) and can access the Institution’s collection and facilities during opening hours. Children under 11 must be accompanied by an adult.
The Institution is open to the general public on a Wednesday afternoons between 1.00 and 4.00 pm and families are able to have a guided tour of the library.
