Children's Department banner with lily pads and frogs

Located on the top floor of the Library overlooking Lake Anna, the Children's Department is a destination spot for children and families.  Children from birth to age 12 and the adults who work with them will find a well-rounded collection of books, magazines, audiobooks, music and movies, as well as a friendly and knowledgeable staff.  Children will also find a variety of games, toys and activities to complete and play with any time they visit the Library.  With parental permission, several computers with access to the Internet are available.  Additionally, preschoolers can play on our early literacy computer station and older children can play on our AfterSchool Edge computer station.  Both are loaded with hundreds of learning games.  We also offer a full range of programming for children of all ages. 

Non-fiction books are a great way to introduce new vocabulary words to preschoolers. Non-fiction books also help teach young children that books contain information and facts not just stories.  Check out our October Pinterest Board for a list of Non-fiction Books for Preschoolers.
