Play Wales library

The Play Wales Library is based in our office in Cardiff Bay. We also have a smaller collection of reference books and resources in the Glyndŵr University library in Wrexham.

We believe it is the most comprehensive collection of books on children's play and play provision in Wales. It is an essential resource for playworkers, teachers, trainers, students and anyone with an interest in children's play.

We hold current and out-of-print material on a wide range of topics related to children and play - from play theory and child development, to building a tree house.

Visitors and small groups of students are very welcome - please contact our Communications Manager to arrange a visit and we will be happy to help you. There is quiet space to study and browse. We have photocopying facilities that operate within copyright law. At present we are unable to lend books.
