Stuff For Kids and Teens and Probably Some Parents Too...

Learn By Doing

Located on the second floor of the library, kids of all ages can find books for every reading level, plus games, toys, puzzles and more.  There are cozy spaces to read, and regular programs for our youngest patrons.  

Beyond the Books

To encourage reading in children and young adults is our passion and first priority, but we have much more to do besides just quiet reading including several computers for homework, research and video games, an activity room for group events, crafts and more, block areas for younger kids and couches to watch PBS or play our in-house Nintendo Switch.

Join Us


We have several ongoing programs for our youngest patrons. Feel free to drop in any time and join us for some fun and learning.

Frequently Asked Questions

We get these questions a lot, so we thought we should have a good place to find the answers (for our sake too).

How old do I have to be to get a library card?

You can get a youth library card at age 6 or when you enter Kindergarten, whichever comes first. It has a few limits compared to a teen or adult card. A legal guardian has to be there when you sign up for a youth library card.

What can I check out with a youth card?

,You can check out up to 10 books, music cds, audiobooks and/or magazines. You can’t check out DVD’s or video games. A youth card is left at the library for safe keeping, so just tell the librarian your first and last name. It can also be used at the bookmobile.

What is a Teen/YA card and when do I get one?

Once you turn 14 your library card gets upgraded to a Teen Card. This not only has a dragon on it, it also allows you to check out (non-rated-R) movies and (non-rated-M) video games. You can also take a total of 20 items. Once you turn 18, you get a full fledged card with no restrictions.

What is the late fee for overdue books?

There is no late fee for overdue items. Fines are only assessed for damaged or missing items, so just make sure you take care of what you borrow and bring it back.

Cool Stuff to (Always) Do

The Library has a ton of stuff for kids and teens to do even if we don’t have programs going on.
