Children Programs

Our bright and colorful children’s room contains materials for children or all ages, from newborn babies to teens. We have board books, picture books, videos and books with tapes for the younger children. Our collection includes beginning reading books for the newest readers, Red Clover books and easier chapter books for those just learning developing their skills.

Our juvenile reading section contains humorous and historical fiction, adventures and mysteries, as well as biographies. We have the Dorothy Canfield Fisher collection, the Newbery winners and the works of local authors.

DSC_1213The non-fiction section of the Children’s Room contains reference books from the World Book Encyclopedia to the Guinness Book of World Records plus online resources and assistance. Magazines include American Girl, Muse, Zoobooks and New Moon Girls.

The Teen Area includes Green Mountain Book Award titles as well as popular fiction and topical non-fiction.

Our audio book section includes cassette tapes and compact discs. Many families listen to these books on tape or CDs together especially on long car trips.

A special parenting section has been established to help facilitate parenting and includes materials which deal with such issues as the emotional and cognitive needs of children, adoption, divorce and family activities.

There is something for all, come in, relax and enjoy and start your child on a lifelong love of library and its magic. We welcome families to enjoy our library.IMG_0218 Storytime with Ben Matchstick
