We have many free programs, events and services for children and their families. Children can get help with their homework or take part in summer learning programs. We offer story times for babies, toddlers and preschoolers. We also offer homeschool help and resources for parents, caregivers and teachers in their work with children. There are always new ways for youth and their families to stay engaged! 

Libraries today offer much more than books, movies, and quiet spaces! Early literacy, play, and STEM exploration are built into our children's programs, so your family can enjoy the Library in new and exciting ways as you read, learn, connect, and create!
 

Our children's collection includes materials for ages birth-2nd grade including board books, picture books, early readers, first chapter books, fiction, nonfiction, graphic novels, audiobooks, playaway view, playaways, wonderbooks, DVDs, and book kits. We also have an extensive eLibrary collection! To learn more about how we choose materials, see our Collection Development Policy.
