Welcome to the Children's Department. We offer materials, programming and services for children from birth up through sixth grade.
Some of our regular programs include story times for infants, toddlers and preschoolers, crafts, STEAM-centered activities for school aged children, a reading program with therapy dogs, special performers, and a popular summer reading club.
Get the flavor of some of our story times and programs from our YouTube video channel. We have many fingerplays, songs and program snippets to check out!
Most of our programs are run on a drop in basis, but some do require registration due to space limitations. Be sure to look at our Events Calendar to find out what's happening.
