For Kids

Welcome to the Kid’s Corner

Our children’s area has a fantastic selection of picture books, easy readers, chapter books, graphic novels and more! 

Bring your child to the library to select some books for recreational reading or school research.  We love seeing children excited about books and reading!

We have a preschool storytime each Tuesday at 10:30, and additional programs for school-aged children are in the works!  Check our calendar for more information.
