Welcome to the Children's Library

Our Children's Room is located in the first floor of the Library. It is a space filled with books, media, and activity stations to engage your child's imagination and senses. Some of our stations include:

  • Lego Table
  • Light Table
  • Sensory Boards
  • Magnet Wall
  • Cozy Reading Spaces 

Our Children's Room welcomes children and their responsible adults. Grown-ups must accompany and supervise their children at all times to ensure that our Library remains a safe and engaging environment.

Take a look at our collections and events and explore our offerings! We welcome you to our space and hope you have a great time. Reach out to us or visit us in person for your next reading recommendation, questions about our events, and more.
