Welcome to the Kids' Library

The Kids’ Library is a fun and open environment for children from birth through eighth grade and the people who care for them. Full of great resources including books, spaces, and knowledgable staff, the Kids’ Library is here to help children develop reading skills and a desire to create, connect, and explore.

Kids can listen to storytime in our Program Room, curl up with a good book in our comfy chairs, or play with blocks and puppets in the Learning Garden. Older kids can do homework or play video games in the Middle School Hangout.

Features of the Kids’ Library include:

  • The Kids’ Help Desk, staffed with friendly and knowledgable librarians!
  • Reading materials for all ages, from board books to lengthy chapter books.
  • Toys, puzzles, puppets, and STREAM kits
  • Kids’ Program Room
  • Study Rooms
  • Kids’ Computer Lab
  • Kid-friendly computing commons
  • AWE early literacy stations
  • iPads to use in the building
