The Children’s Department has MOVED BACK DOWNSTAIRS!!!! If you haven’t been to visit us in a while you will find the children’s department in its old home downstairs. 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.
Bring your family for a visit!
We have a large collection of picture books, board books, easy readers, fiction and nonfiction for children of all ages and interests. In addition we have several non-print collections which include DVDs, audiobooks, and activity kits. Here is a small sampling of new additions to the collection.
