Welcome to the Children's Library!

Welcome to the Children’s Library! The staff of the Children’s Library offers a variety of services to children birth through 6th grade, parents, teachers and others who work with children.

Staff members are happy to help you find whatever you need, from homework help to planning a children’s party or finding that special book you remember. We can also make suggestions for good books to read on a variety of reading levels and interests.

All our programs can be found on the Children's Library calendar.

On Your Mark, Get Set...READ!

Children, preschool through grade 7, should bring their library card to the Children's Desk to register for a Summer Reading club.

Wee Readers is for children younger than 2 years old. Prizes are earned when activities are completed.

Book Club 1 is for children reading E Picture Books, E+ Readers or children who don't yet read on their own. This program encourages reading aloud and gives pre-readers a chance to earn a price for every 10 books.

Book Club 2 is for children who are reading on their own. Prizes are earned for every 5 hours of reading, based on a daily reading goal of 20 to 30 minutes.

Drawings for Book Clubs 1 and 2 are held weekly. Prices are donated by local businesses.

1000 Books Before Kindergarten Calling all families with babies, toddlers and preschoolers: register today for the read-to-me program that leads to lifelong reading success.

Look how easy it is to reach the goal:
One story a day for 5 years equals 1825 stories!
One story a day for 4 years equals 1460 stories!
One story a day for 3 years equals 1095 stories!

Visit the Children's Reference Desk to get started.

There's a lot to explore at the Library. So much that it doesn't all fit in the building! Check out some of our online resources for homework help, animated books, learning a new language, and more.
