Each of our books have been selected by a BAND member of staff, and our library covers all areas of play work and children’s day care. If you are looking for help with dealing with difficult issues, finance and administration or inspiring play ideas – we’ve usually got a book to help.

Books for both playworkers and children are available for loan to Full, Affiliated and Individual BAND members, and to those working towards Full Membership.
