Information for parents

We have a range of books, magazines and online resources to help you as a parent.


Colour-coded children's books

The libraries have a range of books for children.

We have colour coded some of our children's books to make it easier for you to find what you are looking for as your child grows up.

Orange stripes: These are easy information picturebooks suitable for young children. Subject areas include: counting and alphabet, shapes, colours and art, animals, transport, places people live, all about people, festivals and food, space, maths, technology and environment

Green stripes: These are books that are suitable for children who are learning to read. There are a number of different series providing opportunities for exposure to lots of words.

Arrange a visit from a librarian or book a visit to the library

If you are a kindergarten or school in the Moreland municipality, you can have a visit from one of our library professionals.

We also welcome group visits to the library from Schools, Kinders and Day-cares. As we run activities at the library we have allocated time slots for visits to ensure that you have space and that the Librarian is available. We can deliver information sessions, storytimes, STEAM, robotics and other presentations.

To book a day and time please use the online booking system. 

Please note that we require a minimum four weeks' notice to facilitate an incursion or excursion.


You can borrow Practical parenting magazine and Mother and Baby magazine from the library.

Also check out RBdigital for a range of magazines that you can download for free from the library website.

There are also a range of magazines available for children to borrow and read in the library.
