We hope that you'll come to the library and enjoy the children's room, a large round room that's full of sunlight. Around the outside walls are nonfiction books - dictionaries, science, nature, history, and more. Baskets on the windowsills are filled with picture books for our youngest visitors. In the center of the room are shelves of easy-reading books for young readers as well as chapter books for older readers. You will find several computers at a round table in the middle of the room, just for kids 10 and under.
Our children's librarian, Miss Lisa, holds several storytimes on Thursdays and Fridays each week, including infant and family events. In addition, one Saturday a month, the Kiwanis club has a storytime. We periodically have special reading events, such as "Reading to Rocky the Dog," especially for those who need to practice their reading.
