Your Kids Connection

Kids can connect to an exciting section of the library designed just for them. Hardly a day goes by when we don’t have something going on for kids, from babies and tots to teens.

Take home a good book from our huge library. Get a music cd or an age-appropriate movie. Internet computers are also available in the Children's Library for online research. Don't forget to check out our calendar for upcoming storytimes and more!

Lego Club

Come build with us! Our staff chooses a new building theme each month. Kids build for about forty-five minutes, then judges choose a winner from each age group.

Lego bricks and snacks are provided.

The program, for ages 3-14, lasts about an hour and a half and is held once a month, at 1:30 p.m. on a Sunday. Visit our calendar for the next event.

Board Gaming

Come try out a new game or enjoy an old favorite! Chris Hough brings board games to share with 8- to 12-year-olds. Check our calendar for a complete list of dates and times.
