Public libraries offer various services at their Children's Departments; from printed, audio-visual and electronic materials, educational games, computers and information and communication technologies to creativity workshops and educational activities. They are not an imposed obligation and are a free choice of an individual which makes them play a significant role in children's upbringing and education. By using this advantage, libraries can help children and groups of children to bridge the gap between kindergarten/family home and school through conceived programmes. In the thesis are observed some of the possibilities of devising educational programmes and creativity workshops organised by libraries in cooperation with kindergartens, schools and all the other children's institutes. That would be carried out through all the resources of the libraries and in recent times, through information and communication technologies. Such approach is multi-valued; not only is it advantageous to the users and educational institutes but also to a society of happier individuals. The aim is to point out libraries as a competent public institutes with an incredible potential of its users, staff, resources and cooperation with other competent institutes due to its qualitative organisation of leisure time. Whether a child comes from a family home, an orphanage or attends a kindergarten, the preschool age is a very sensitive period of every child’s life. On that account, libraries can and should devise easier, more acceptable and more delighted way of accepting responsibilities in their transitory period and without stressful consequences. This thesis shows the results of a conducted study about the resources libraries have for the preschool children: for the ones who attend kindergartens and for the ones who do not attend them, for the children from orphanages and for the children of the first grade of elementary schools. There are also suggested the possibilities of using information and communication technologies in a combination with both traditional materials and Montessori’s pedagogy.
