The Children’s Library was opened to the general public on January 25th, 2003. The Children’s Library contains books, audiobooks, and magazines for children 13 years and under. There is a study room available for children to do homework or tutoring. We also have computers for children to use. To use the computers, a child must have his/her library card available, with fines under $5.00.
We are excited to introduce our new Youth Services Librarian, Amanda McNally! Amanda will be managing children’s and teen programming, including an exciting summer reading program. Please say “Hi” to Amanda the next time you visit the Children’s Room and make her feel welcome.
Children are invited to come to the Morristown-Hamblen Library Children’s Room for fun games, including darts, cornhole, and stack ’em. Everything is free, so come and enjoy some family time at the library!
