The Children’s Room has materials in many formats for children aged 0-12, in English as well as in Spanish, French, Chinese, Russian, and Hebrew. We also have a collection on child development for parents, teachers and caregivers.
We offer activities, crafts and interactive programs for children of all ages (up to age 12). Programs include live performances, films, nature presentations, crafts, and more. An interactive program designed for toddlers and a caregiver is offered on a weekly basis. This program focuses on learning social skills and following a basic routine. A weekly preschool story time is also offered. This program focuses on early learning such as colors and shapes, self-awareness, early literacy and builds on social skills learned in toddler time. Yoga for ages 5 and up is offered on a weekly basis as well. Programs for school age children are offered after-school, weekends, and holidays. Check the monthly newsletter to see what is happening!
Certain programs require registration. All events and details are listed in the library newsletter.
We have 4 computers designated for children 12 years of age and younger, each with a variety of educational games. All children’s computers have internet access. Adults who accompany children to the library can request a laptop at the Circulation Desk for use in the Children’s Room.
