Children's Library Full of Fun, Learning and Reading!

Children's Library

Children's Library

We are excited about our children's 'Early Literacy Stations - ELS'. ELS is a computer workstation loaded with more than 45 educational software titles for kids ages 2 - 10. ELS offers children a safe, standalone computer not connected to the internet that is age appropriate, engaging, and academically relevant for children. There is an imaginative interface that encourages exploration. The stations have a colorful keyboard, a tiny mouse, special earphones, and a touch screen to promote easy learning and discovery.

Children just love it!

Story Time

Story Time programs introduce young children to books, rhymes, music and other fun activities. Every week the library offers programs matched to the typical attention spans and developmental levels of different ages of children. Library Story Times incorporate the early literacy skills that children must master before they can learn to read.

PLEASE contact our Children’s Services Assistant in advance of story time to learn how we can best accommodate your group(s).

Easy Reader Area

Easy Readers is the area just for the little ones who are being read to or who are just learning to read. See the comfy rocking chair for parents to use while reading to their little ones.

There is a special collection for those just learning to read, with books from Pre-Reading to Level 3. And check out the collection of books to help parents teach a child to read.

Storytime for preschoolers is held every Wednesday at 10 - 10:30 am. At the same time on Tuesdays is storytime for infants and toddlers.
