STEM! Art! Writing!

The Children’s collection, primarily intended for children from birth to fifth grade, encompasses a wide variety of subjects and formats including books (in English, Spanish, Arabic, and more), magazines, audiobooks, graphic novels, CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays, and videogames (Wii, Xbox, and PlayStation).

Our patrons also have access to a large selection of electronic resources, including eBooks and streaming media.

Whether your children are interested in weekly story times and crafts, regular STEM/STEAM programs, 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten, or our annual Summer Reading program, there is something for everyone.
