Here in the Children’s Room, we are always delighted when a new patron finds out about all the great programming we offer. From storytimes for babies to afterschool clubs for 4th graders, our goal is to have activities for every child, every family, and every stage of development. Our events are always 100% free and open to the public. Wondering what we offer for your child? Check out the list below!

I have a 3-7 year-old on the autism spectrum. What can we do?
All children are encouraged to attend any storytime that most closely aligns with their age. 3-5 year-olds will love Preschool Storytime and Step Into Music, while the older crowd will enjoy Afternoon Stories on Mondays, or playing with our board games and reading picture books. You may also be interested in Sensory Storytime, which takes place once a month for children with ASD. Please register ahead of time for this fantastic morning of stories, sensory activities, games, and friendship. Our next meeting is on Saturday, November 7th at 10:00 am.
I have a 4-7 year-old. What can we do?
Afternoon Stories from 1:00 – 1:45 pm on Mondays and Bedtime Stories from 6:30 pm – 7:00 pm on Tuesday nights. Don’t forget about all our awesome picture books, coloring in one of our coloring books, playing one of our board games or Minecraft, or borrowing a new 3DS game to try!
I have an 8-11 year-old. What can we do?
Afterschool Clubs are the newest addition to our programming calendar. These registration-only clubs run for 3-4 weeks at a time and include umbrella topics like Minecraft, Messy Art, Cooking, Crafting with Knots, and coming in January: even more art! Of course, we’d love for you to check out a new chapter book, borrow a video game you’ve never tried before, or play a board game in the Reading Adventure Room, too!
