PARENTS

We want to make your child’s library experience one they will remember. Come enjoy our great spaces, collections, and services for babies through 8th graders. Older kids (9th-12th grade) are welcome to sit and study upstairs near the Young Adult books.

PROGRAM, PLAY, AND FUN SPACES

The Children’s Room is located in the lower level of the library. You can enter the Children’s Room easily from our Ohio Street ramp. While visiting check out our toddler friendly area with puzzles and Duplo blocks. We also have computers and mounted iPads featuring fun, age-appropriate games and apps for all ages. Older kids can do homework or use our 7 desktop computers. Teens are welcome to use the two teen computers upstairs. And then throughout the year we have plenty of programming taking place in our activity room, so be sure to check out our programs.
