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.

Readers of all ages are invited to join us at the library for Summer Reading Club and earn prizes for reading all summer long! The 2018 theme of Summer Reading Club is "Libraries Rock!" and the club will run from June 2 through August 11.

 

Highlights of the program include a presentation from Ironwood Wolves on the lives of wolves, a West African drum performance from Sogbety Diomande, magic and humor from Michael Mage, and a juggling performance from Matt Jergens. Children ages five to nine can stop by the library for programs featuring musical instruments, slime, and gardens. Tweens will find weekly special programs just for them, including a presentation from Mad Science. Storytime and crafts are available for babies, toddlers, and preschoolers.
