Children's & Teen's Programs

The library provides high-quality programs for children and assists parents in selecting materials that will make reading a pleasure as well as an instructional experience. The library introduces children to the world of books by means of a loving and supporting environment and seeks to set them on the path toward a lifelong love of reading.

The children’s program features several special events throughout the year. The weekly Story Time for children ages three to five is held each Wednesday morning at 10 o’clock where children enjoy a special story and craft activity. The Babies and Books program for toddlers introduces very young children to the world of books. Hundreds of children from birth through seventh grade participate in the Summer Reading Program which features high-quality, professional entertainers and other activities during the six-week program. An innovative Teen Program attracts young people ages 13 to 18 for several weeks of activities during the summer.
