Welcome to the Children's Room



Located on the main floor, our vibrant and inviting space offers a broad collection of library materials and a myriad of games, puzzles, and crafts serving infants to age 18. We encourage little ones to explore the pre-literacy play area equipped with soft blocks and invite students to settle into our new teen space outfitted with computers and comfortable seating. A staff of friendly Librarians are available for readers in search of recommendations. In addition we offer a wide variety of year-round free programs including weekly story time for little ones and engaging STEM and teen-led programs for middle grade students. Look forward to our busy Summer Reading Program each year, with a steady schedule of visiting performers and exciting themed events.
