Children's Services

The Children's Library provides fun, educational, and enriching programs for children and their families. All programs are free to the whole community. Whether it's spending time with your newborn building pre-literacy skills at a weekly Babytime, working on a take-home project with the Art Club, or learning about Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics with the STEAM Club, there is something for every interest and age.

Currently, due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, many children's programs are being offered virtually through secure digital platforms. These include take-home elements and activities that you can pick up at your local library prior to the event for follow at home fun. Outdoor and in-person storytimes are also available on a limited basis. More information about specific programs can be found on the programs & events page.
