Check out all the great things we have going on for children!
The children’s area contains a wide variety of picture, early reader, chapter, and informational text selections as well as a broad offering of audiobooks, DVDs, tablets, several pre-school and school-aged magazines and four pre-programmed, non-internet computers with touch-screen capability and age-appropriate educational games.
Join us for monthly preschool story times during the school year with various activities such as reading, singing, playing, and crafting. Register for our summer reading program with reading challenges, performers and entertaining, informative, age-based activities. Come down for afterschool programs such as brick builder’s club, game day, and kid’s book club.
Our librarians are here to help your children find and cultivate the joy in reading by encouraging them to broaden their reading horizons and to learn how to explore the library for new, exciting topics.
Sign up to read 1000 books to your child before Kindergarten on the reading programs sign up link. (This link also works for the summer reading program). The concept is simple, the rewards are priceless. Read a book (any book) to your newborn, infant, and/or toddler. The goal is to have read 1,000 books (yes you can repeat books) before your child starts Kindergarten. Does it sound hard? Not really if you think about it. If you read just 1 book a night, you will have read about 365 books in a year. That is 730 books in two years and 1,095 books in three years. If you consider that most children start kindergarten at around 5 years of age, you have more time than you think (so get started).
