Welcome to the Youth Services Department downstairs at the Bridgton Public Library! If you haven’t been to visit us in a while, we invite you to bring your family to the library and explore this great space dedicated to children and young adults. We have areas for all ages to read, discover and learn in. Our youngest patrons will find a great play space for imagining and exploring and our teens will find a separate room designated as a quiet space where they can log on to their devices, read, or study. We look forward to seeing you!
Miss Samantha is excited to explore programming and outreach opportunities with kids and families in our community, and she is looking forward to meeting you! Her achievements include earning the Gold Star in Girl Scouts and receiving her B.A. in Anthropology from Adelphi University. Please stop in and say hello.

Weekly Children’s Programs
Preschool Storytime every Friday 10:00-11:00. This is a storytime for children ages 0-4 years. Following storytime we have a craft and snack. No registration is required.
Tunes for Tots is every Tuesday 10:00-11:00. For ages 0-4, this hands-on program includes a rotating collection of musical instruments, a take-turns sing-along, and usually a good old-fashioned parade of fun.
In addition to our ongoing programs, we also have regular and special programs throughout each month. You can find a detailed schedule with dates and times on the Calendar page of our website.
