The Children’s Library is a dedicated space for children and their guardians to browse and enjoy our myriad of children’s books offerings. 

Our book selection ranges from fiction for all ages (board books and picture books, early readers of all levels, through to full-length chapter books).  We have an expansive non-fiction section as well to help your children learn about history, nature, science, sports, art and more. In addition, we have a selection of popular audio books and an ever-expanding offering of children’s DVDs. 

Children are issued separate cards from their parents who remain responsible for them.
