Our Children’s Area is meant for more than just reading. Our Pre-School Play Area features puzzles, both wooden and traditional, for children of all ages, trains, blocks and cardboard building, animal puppets and puppet plays. We also offer drop-in crafts sessions that allow children to practice working with their hands and bring home amazing art that they can be proud of. Be sure to reference our events schedule to see what’s upcoming, or just stop by the play area for some unstructured free time.
We carry a wide selection of children’s books for all different age groups and spanning all genres. From all of the beloved classics to some of our staff’s lesser known favorites, there are more than enough wonderful stories to explore. We also carry child-friendly biographies to learn about important the historical figures of our time. Our vast selection will make learning more fun than ever.
