New families are encouraged to visit the library anytime.  Many programs are held in the children’s room–parents find this a welcome connection to each other.

The Children’s Room is known for its very family friendly space.  Families use the space to play with puppets, read together in the rocking chair, and use the toys or play the piano.  Parents help or supervise their children on the computers.  Parents can check their email while their children look for books.
