The paper begins with an overview of public libraries and their functions and continues with the work of children’s departments. It lists the main characteristics that are usually associated with that department and the guidelines upheld by its employees. Children’s departments offer various advantages for children and by doing so recruit new and keep existing members. Through their services, programs and activities libraries induce development of early literacy and ease knowledge acquisition and learning for children. They try to satisfy the needs of children and are therefore adapting to an ever-changing society. Libraries should be places that are comfortable and enjoyable for children. Children that acquire reading habits from an early age perceive books as something familiar and don't hesitate to use them. Children are usually encouraged by their parents to visit libraries, those who are not should receive the incentive form someone/somewhere else. Libraries are important because they provide high-quality contemporary services and attractive programs for children and by doing so extend skills that are valuable for children through their life-long learning process. In this paper good library practices for children and youths are illustrated through activities and programs of the Public library “Petar Preradović” Bjelovar Children’s department.
