- Books for adults and children
- Large print books
- Audio books
Books are loaned to library members free of charge. Our online catalogue of fiction and non-fiction books and other items is available for use on the Flintshire web site and some libraries have dedicated computers for this purpose.
Every library has a section for children with storybooks for all ages and information books to help with homework and hobbies. Some libraries have books and other materials for parents on child development, babycare, pregnancy, health, play and helping children with school work. Playgroups, nurseries, parent/toddler groups and childminders can borrow collections of books to use with children in their care.
Large Print books make reading easier and more comfortable for those with poor eyesight. All libraries in Flintshire have a selection of fiction and non fiction in large print. If you require a particular title, please ask the staff for assistance.
Audio Books for adults are held in most Flintshire libraries and some libraries have audio books for children. Various formats are available in the county, including cassette, CD, MP3 disc and a preloaded MP3 format known as Playaways. There is normally a hire charge for borrowing Audio Books but they are available free of charge to those who are registered blind, partially sighted or housebound. Details of facilities for the housebound and the visually impaired are on our Special Requirements leaflet. Audio Books which are held by a Flintshire library may be reserved free of charge, those not in our stock may be requested for a small fee.
