Milford Haven Disability and Sensory Library

The Milford Haven Disability and Sensory Library, has been set up in partnership with Milford Haven Neighbourhood Policing Team (MHNPT) and Pembrokeshire Libraries.  MHNPT used grant money to buy specialist toys and equipment for the benefit of local children with additional needs.  Items can be borrowed from Milford Haven Library and Information Centre. The toys are not on public display due to a lack of space in the library but are listed in the Disability and Sensory Library Catalogue.

  • Board books
  • Picture books
  • Stories and Rhymes on CD 
  • DVDs

Storytimes and Baby Rhyme Times

Children can have their own card and can borrow up to 12 books for three weeks.

Library staff are always willing to help and advise on books and information so please don't hesitate to ask.

You can find details of all our library items on our online catalogue.

And remember: Reservations for children are FREE!

Lots of our Libraries hold regular Storytimes and Baby Rhyme Times. Take a look at our events page to find out more.

Bookstart

We support the Bookstart programme funded by the Welsh Assembly Government.

The programme encourages all parents and carers to enjoy books with children from as early as possible, as a child who shares books everyday will develop their language and literacy skills as well as benefiting both socially and emotionally.

Every baby receives a FREE bilingual Bookstart Baby Pack at their nine month health check.

Bookstart Early Years Pack

Every child in Pembrokeshire also receives an Early Years Pack at their 18-30 month health check.

Book Crawl 

We run the Book Crawl scheme to encourage babies and very young children to join the library. It highlights the importance of books and reading and is easy to do - just ask at your local library to find out more

Playgroups, Toddler Clubs and Childminders

Childminders, playgroups and toddler clubs are entitled to a special library card - ask at any of our libraries for more details. We are always happy to welcome groups wishing to visit our libraries.
