Gotta catch 'em all!


We strive to serve our families with care and kindness every day.  The Children's Library staff is here to connect you with our books, audiobooks, and movies, but also with our community and its many resources.  Never hestitate to ask us a question! 

To ensure the room is welcoming and enjoyable for all who use it, we have a few guidelines:

  • Children must be 12 years of age to use the room or elevator without an adult.
  • All visitors must use walking feet.
  • While enjoying our toys, games, and activities, we ask you to use calm voices.

Children interested in getting a card may do so at any time.  However, only parents and legal guardians may initiate a new registration. 

Welcome to the Children's Library!
