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 library materials and use library computers.

To get a library card, a form must be signed by a parent or legal guardian.

Internet and Children

Children may use the public internet or public wi-fi at the library.

It is up to the parent to monitor a child's library internet use. 

Make sure your child knows how to be safe online.

 Please be aware that the library does not use parental software or other blocking tools.
