Welcome to the Children’s Department!
Our focus is on children from birth through age 14. We have a large collection of materials
including : board books, picture books, books for beginning readers, current and classic fiction,
a wide range of non-fiction titles, books in Spanish, audio books, music CDs, magazines,
downloadable audio and e-books and much, much more.
We have 3 special AWE computers. These Early Literacy Stations are a dynamic all-in-one
digital learning solution for children ages 2–10. These popular computers are a must for many
children any time they visit the library. They are so much fun no one notices how much
learning is actually taking place. One is Spanish/English bilingual.
Our Children’s Department offers a variety of programming throughout the year. Four series of
pre-school story hours for children from ages 3 months to 5 years are offered September
through May. Pre-registration is a must.
