For Kids

We are committed to being a fun, educational, imaginative, and safe place
for kids and parents to learn and develop a love of reading together.
Our kids area has matching games, alphabet sorters, chunky puzzles,
stuffed animals and other toys for you to play with together.
We have special computers with age-appropriate educational games.
We also hope that you'll join us at some of our special events and programs!

Tales4Tots.pngTales 4 Tots (ages 0-3
Tales for Tots is designed for families with babies and toddlers.  We know reading can be a wonderful shared activity, but don’t let all that fun fool you…they are learning lots!  Babies and toddlers are beginning to build those important communication skills (listening, vocabulary & memory).  New concepts in numbers, colors, letters and shapes will also be introduced.
Tales for Tots will take place each Monday from 10:30-11:00am


ReadandPlay.pngRead and Play (ages 4-5)
Although all ages are welcome, the focus of this storytime is primarily kindergarten readiness.  Read and Play is held on Fridays at 10:30am.
Storytime lasts about 45 minutes and includes songs, fingerplays, stories and a craft
all designed around the day's theme.  



EveningStoryTime.pngBook Buddies (ages 4-5)
Book Buddies is a special evening story time.  It was created at the request of our many working families who are unable to attend our regular story time on Friday mornings.  This is for all ages but focuses primarily with preschool ages 3-4. 
So grab your teddy bear and join us the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month at 5:30 pm!

Children and their families discover the joy of invention and the thrill of discovery.

All of our Easy level books have been labelled with their AR level.  Just look for the colored tape near the top of the book's spine.  You can also check the AR and other reading levels on our Card Catalog(link), just search, click the title of the book, and then click the small sun icon.

Reading Readiness Tubs
Did you know that the library offers travelling tubs to promote early literacy? These tubs are available to local preschools, daycares,or even those running small childcare services in their homes. We fill the tub with a selection  of items according to your needs including DVDs, BIG books, books on CD, song CDs, board books, and other children's books.
