About the Children’s Library and Links

The Children’s Library was opened to the general public on January 25th, 2003. The Children’s Library contains books, audio books, and magazines for children 13 years and under. In addition, there is a Study Room available for children to do homework in, and computers set up for children to use. Children using the computers must have his/her library card available, with fines under $5.00 to use the computers, and must sign up at the Children’s Room Circulation Desk.

All children and their families are invited.  Other program events include holiday programs, movie night and game night.  Please check with the Children’s Librarian for the current program schedule.
