Children's Services

Abby loves to listen to stories.

Families are encouraged to take advantage of the early read aloud programs at the Town Hall Library. Story times are scheduled for babies, toddler and pre-school children throughout the year.

The children’s area has LOTS of fiction and non-fiction books, along with children’s DVDs, learning/activity bags, audio book CDs, children's music CDs, magazines and audiobooks. If children (or helpful parents) need to locate books on a specific topic, the on-line book catalog is available for searches. There is also an assistance desk in the Lower Level if you have any questions.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You can also take advantage of this special site to look for children's OverDrive books!

  • Join Abby and her trainer for a monthly  program that makes a gentle, patient therapy dog available for children to read or show books to.
