Library Services for Children

The library has story hours for preschool children, and many other free programs including crafts, puppets, music, guest performers, and more.  It's a welcoming place where families come together for community, fun, and friendship.

For students, there are books with helpful facts for homework, online homework resources designed for children, and other materials for reading, learning, and exploring.

Computers with educational games are available in the children's room. 

A Library Card for Every Child

Even very young children can receive a free library card.

A library card means the child can check out books. 

Parents may also choose to allow their child to use the internet or to borrow videos and DVDs.

Look for these options on the library card form. It must be signed by a parent or guardian.


Children may use the public internet computers in the adult area if a parent or legal guardian permits.

A parent may add this permit to a child's library card or choose to sign a form for one-time use on each occasion.
