We have books for all ages and reading levels including:

  • Juvenile Fiction (i.e. chapter books)
  • Non-Fiction
  • Biographies
  • Oversize
  • Juvenile Graphic Novels


We also offer a selection of audiobooks on CD for kids plus some music CDs.

Computers Kids PC

Four computers are available for kids to do homework, research and even play educational and fun games on. A library card, school ID or parent/care giver is needed to get computer access. Computer passes can be issued for 3 months at a time so ID is only needed once.

Play Space Kids Play

Kids can be kids in the play space at the back of the Children's Area. We have all kinds of toys and activities to challenge a young mind.

There is also a puppet show booth, pretend store-front sponsored by local businesses and a new diner where kids can "cook" and hang out.
