Welcome to the Children’s Department 

Come down to where stories are told, songs are sung and young minds are exposed to the wonders of the world. The Children’s Department serves children from birth through 5th grade their caregivers, teachers, and members of the general public interested in children’s literature. We present weekly programs for babies, toddlers, preschoolers, school age and the caregivers of these children.
