Children’s Services

 

Children’s Services includes children from birth to age 11 as well as their parents and caregivers. The Library offers workshops, storytimes, books and activities to help nurture a love of reading and learning. We also have children’s areas in every Library where parents and children can read, play and learn.

 

Early Literacy (ages 0 – 4)

Learning begins at birth and parents are a child’s first and most important teacher. Early literacy encompasses what children need to experience before they learn how to read and write. This begins in the first three years of a child’s life and is related to the interaction children have with books, everyday language, singing, scribbling and playing. Help your child get ready to read with simple activities every day including:

  • Talking with children is one of the best ways to help them learn new words and information.
  • Singing is a natural way for children to learn about language.
  • Reading together is the single most important way to help children get ready to read.
  • Writing and reading go together. Scribbling and writing help children learn that written words stand for spoken language.
  • Playing helps children put thoughts into words and think symbolically so they understand that spoken and written words can stand for real objects and experiences.

Independent Literacy (ages 5 – 11)

The Library offers reading recommendations, online resources, booklists, programs and student support.  Libraries serve as extensions of the classroom, offering resources students need to succeed in school.

  • Book Suggestions are available from knowledgeable library staff both online and in-person.
  • Educational Support can be found through free online resources, programs, collections as well as library spaces for studying and learning.
  • Parent Support is provided through workshops, online resources and knowledgeable library staff.
  • Resources can be found through online and print materials as well as knowledgeable staff.
