For Children

Come to the library for a quiet place to study or a place to play with a friend.  We have toys, puzzles, and legos for use in the library.  We also offer free, filtered wifi for use by all patrons.  

We have a wide selection of children's books, from board books to chapter books, in both fiction and nonfiction.  We also have children's puzzles available for checkout.  

If there is a particular series or author you are looking for, let us know.  We can help you find it or see if it would be a good candidate to add to our collection.  We are always looking for recommendations!  


Summer Library Program 2021

Join us every Wednesday in June for fun activities and presenters!  No pre-registration is required. Come to one event or all, as your schedule allows. 

Kids aged 1-4 can come with their caretaker to enjoy stories, songs and crafts geared to them with our Toddle Time.  (Please note: caretakers are expected to stay with the little ones and be responsible for them during this time.)

Our Summer Reading Program will run June 1 - July 11.  This year we are offering a Read to Bead incentive, where kids can design their own necklace or keychain- just earn beads by reading!  Stop in the library to register and pick up a reading log.  Contact the library for more details.
