Join in the fun! We offer a variety of children's programs every month. Find fun activities for your family in our newsletter.

Create our monthly bookmark

Every month, we call on kids to create a bookmark for the library. Make it at home or at the library-- we'll supply the paper and the theme. Submit your design by the end of the month for a chance to be our featured artist for the following month.

Available in the Children's Room. Free.

Scavenger hunts

Find all of the scavenger hunt items and win a small prize. This program runs in the Children's Room every day with a new theme each week.
