Children's Department

Located on the top floor of the library, overlooking Lake Anna, the Children's Department is a place where children can read, create and explore.  As well as a variety of materials available for check-out, the Children's Department has art projects, games, toys and puzzles for children and families to enjoy during their visit, plus computers for homework and play.  

On-line Programs We have planned some programming for the month of April, that children from birth to middle school can participate in through our website, YouTube or social media.  Visit often for new programs and content!
