Youth Services Department

Welcome to the youth services department! Located on the bottom floor of the library, this area of the library is designed for children, youth, and teens ages 0-18.  You will find everything from board books all the way up to young adult books, fiction, and non-fiction.

In addition to books, our department offers audiobooks, Playaway audiobooks (self contained audio players),  Wonderbooks™, Books with CD kits, DVD’s, and the use of 4 computers, 2 for ages 8 to 12 and 2 for ages 13 to 17. We are excited to offer a variety of STEM Educational Kits and Playaway Launchpad (pre-loaded tablets). We are add new items to our collection each month.

We have been through a whirlwind of changes in the past few years. Our Youth Services Staff has been working diligently to keep you not only educated,  but also entertained! We will continue to provide cutting edge programs to cultivate a lifelong LOVE of reading and learning! There is truly something for everyone. 

We will continue to keep up on our website the Digital Learning options that we used during the pandemic.  You can access 24 hours a day. We have resumed normal programming throughout the year, bringing in new programs and returning favorites. 

Some of the returning favorites are: Storytimes, Mother Goose Lapsit, and Makin’ Music with Mr. Mike, and the D.AR.T. dogs. 

We have trivia, book talks, and MakerSpace time for teens!
