In the UK: Staffordshire University Opens a New Library… For Pre-Schoolers
Children as young as three and four are going to university after getting their own library on the campus.
Staffordshire University has created the facilities so youngsters can browse through books while their parents are studying alongside them.
The children’s library – located in a corner of the main university library off College Road, Stoke – has been kitted out with funky seating, shelves brimming with books and even a story chair.
The plan is to open up the library to the community as well. The books cater for babies right through to those of primary school age. Eventually, there could be books for teenagers too.
