Children, Teens, & Families


Welcome to the Children’s Library, where things are really hopping!

Our space features a cozy reading room surrounded by books, a classroom, tutoring rooms, and our resident rabbit and reading ambassador, Blossom. There are so many wonderful ways for young readers to be involved here — through storytimes, family events, book clubs, after-school activities, volunteering, and more. Stop by to say hello, browse our collection, or make an appointment to read to Blossom or take her for a spin around the library in her bunny-mobile.
