What's Happening

Join us for our next 6-week session of story times, beginning January 6
Sat. Jan. 18 drop in to the Children's Room from 10 to 2 and make winter crafts.
We will be discussing two picture book biographies this month. Monday January 27 at 4 pm.

Welcome!

We strive to serve our families with care and kindness every day.  The Children's Room staff is here to connect you with our books, audiobooks, and movies, but also with our community and its many resources.  Never hestitate to ask us a question! 

To ensure the room is welcoming and enjoyable for all who use it, we have a few guidelines:

  • Children must be 12 years of age to use the room or elevator without an adult.
  • All visitors must use walking feet.
  • While enjoying our toys, games, and activities, we ask you to use calm voices.

Children interested in getting a card may do so at any time.  However, only parents and legal guardians may initiate a new registration.
