About the Children's Room

The Children's Library provides access to quality early educational programming year round. This 21st century learning space for children and caregivers combines traditional library service with STREAM (science, technology, reading, engineering, art and math), early literacy and other activities.

  • Offers customized learning experiences for early learners, elementary learners and tweens.
  • Features materials, computers, events and much more for kids through sixth grade.
  • Provides an opportunity for children to experience the enjoyment of reading and the excitement of discovering knowledge and works of the imagination by providing a wide range of materials and activities.
  • Children and their care providers learn how to make the best use of a library and how to develop skills in the use of printed and electronic media.

The Children’s Library Services Staff has the responsibility to support the process of learning to read, and to promote books and other media for children by providing special events for children, such as storytelling and activities related to the library’s services and resources.

We invite you to explore this exciting space!
