The library is the best place to raise readers! A 2010 study showed that having access to books made as much of a difference in a child’s success as having highly educated or wealthy parents. We recommend you visit the library once a week, starting when your child is a baby. There is no minimum age for a library card.
We have a children’s library with thousands of books to read with your child. We also offer storytimes at 10:00 a.m. on the first and third Thursdays of the month. Have older children? They will enjoy our Independent Readers Book Club on the third Thursday of the month at 10:00 a.m. Other children’s activities are scheduled throughout the year. And through our partnership with Jefferson County Elementary School, every child in school gets storytime at least once a month.
Our family computer lab is also a good place to work online while your kids play and read. There are board books and a play wall for our littlest patrons. If you are looking for help finding a book for your child, or helping your child get ready to read, please ask a staff member.
