The Children’s Library offers materials and programs for all children up to 14 years of age.  Our experienced librarians promote literacy, encourage the exploration of ideas, and create opportunities for engagement with others. We offer materials and programs that are educational, diverse, and entertaining.

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten Foundation recommends reading, even re-reading, any book to your child, with the goal of reading 1,000 books before Kindergarten. Did you know your child can participate through our Library for a chance to win fun prizes along the way? For every book you read (a book from the library, a book from home, even the same book 100 times), your child can color in a lily pad on the coloring sheet. Print your first coloring sheet here or stop at the Children’s Desk to begin!
