Getting children into the library at an early age is essential to their futures.  Studies show children who are read to at home and use the library do better in school and are more likely to continue to use the library as a source of lifetime learning.

  • The library is a place for kids to read, learn & have fun
  • Everyone in the family can enjoy the library together
  • Librarians can help kids find books that are age-appropriate
  • Check out local story times* and other activities for your children
  • Borrow books to share with your child to read to them at home
  • Libraries have books in many different languages
