Kids Zone

Looking to get your kids into reading?

The Deepings Library Kids Zone is a great place to start.

We cherish the opportunity to get kids involved in literature and know that early learning development is key to your child’s enjoyment.

Teen Zone

Joining the Teenage Zone is free. If you are aged 12 or above and live in the Deepings area, then you can join as a member of the library using a proof of identity.

Our library has a teen area where you can really chill out and relax, learn and enjoy our teen zone that is especially designed by teenagers for teenagers.


Welcome to the adult’s section of the library.
Here you’ll find a selection of new and old titles that have come into the library. We have numerous clubs, sessions and activities throughout the year. If you love chatting about your favourite book come down and get involved with our senior book group where we sit, read and discuss the latest in book news.

Reading Lincs

Reading Lincs is a project between three local primary schools encouraging parental engagement, supporting reluctant readers and providing a greater depth to reading for those already proficient.

The schools that are taking part in the initiative are Market Deeping Community School, Baston C of E School and Deeping St James Primary School.
