Children’s Services

Our Youth Services department has a passion for encouraging a lifelong love of reading and joy in learning! Learn more about the tools and services that the library provides for youth of all ages.

Early Literacy

Every time you sing, read, write, talk and play with your child, you are building vital connections in their growing brain. Doing so helps prepare your child for kindergarten by building a strong foundation for learning. Library storytimes and other early literacy programming are derived from the American Library Association’s Every Child Ready to Read program.  

Learning from Home

We’re here to help with all of your learning from home needs. From online tutoring services and flashcard sets to practice tests and research tools, the library is a go-to resource for school-age learners and caregivers.
