Children's Services

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!

 

Other services for children include:

  • Reading programs like 1000 Books Before Kindergarten and 500 Books Before High School
  • Seasonal reading programs with incentives
  • Early literacy computers
  • Summer Library Reading Program with weekly activities and special events
