Our Children’s Department has undergone several changes in the last year, with expanded and improved collections, new carpet, a seascape mural of sound-absorbing panels, additional lighting, new and thematic book displays, seasonal décor, and a giant train engine to play on! You will also find coloring sheets, a weekly scavenger hunt, a puppet theater, and other activities to do while you’re here. We encourage you to come visit us and hang around for a while, and our friendly and knowledgeable staff are here to help you!

In addition, we are once again offering in-person programs, events, and activities for kids and families year-round! In addition to occasional special programs and events, we currently have several regularly-occurring kids programs from September through April (storytime takes a 3 week break at the end December/beginning of January):

  • Toddler Storytime – Tuesdays at 10:30am, best suited for ages 1-3
  • Preschool Storytime – Fridays at 10:30am, best suited for ages 3-5
  • Family Pokémon Club – 1st Tuesday of the month @ 4:00pm, all ages
  • Kids Club – 3rd Tuesday of the month @ 4:00pm, varied activities, ages 5-11

In addition to these, we often have other programs and activities, such as during Fall and Spring Break, seasonal or holiday events, and a summer program for all ages that begins with a kick-off event the first Saturday of June and runs through the end of July.
