Welcome to the children's room!

Librarians Meredith and Bex welcome you to the children's room, located in the rear of the first floor. Enter the library and walk straight to the back of the building. The room offers a play area with several toys and wooden puzzles, circulating toys, a public computer, a large table space for programs and homework, and of course, books and audiobooks! We enjoy assisting our patrons with finding titles, whether new or classic. We can also assist your child with selecting books needed for school projects. Children's DVDs, video games, and parenting books are located in the middle room, just before entering the children's room. Both public bathrooms, located on the basement level, offer changing tables. Please scroll down the page for Children's Room rules.

Children's Room Rules: 

  • Responsibility for supervising and insuring the safety and behavior of children in the library or on library grounds belongs to the parent, not the library personnel.
  • A child under the age of 7, or whose physical, mental, emotional, or social development requires close parental attention to ensure his/her safety and appropriate behavior, should NOT be left alone anywhere in the library - including in the Children's Room.
  • Children between 7 and 9 may use the Children's Room alone unless they require the parental supervision listed in the previous statement. However, an adult must stay inside the library at all times.
  • Library staff does not assume a supervisory role while a parent is participating in programs or activites in the library.
  • We kindly ask that you do not consume food in the room.
