The Children’s Room is an inviting space specially designed for children of all abilities from birth to grade five and their caregivers. We offer child friendly computers, activities, and programs, as well as a large selection of books, magazines, audio books, ebooks, DVDs, video games, and online services for homework help.

The Road to Reading begins with you. Reading, talking, singing, writing, and playing with your child helps develop their early literacy skills. Early literacy is everything your child knows about reading and writing before they can read or write. Our library programs are designed to develop these skills by including songs, fingerplays, rhymes, and stories. Together we can lay a foundation for success in learning to read.
