Welcome to the Kid’s Department!
The Kid’s department is located in the lower level of the library. It is a fun space for our littlest learners. In this space, we have AWE Learning computers, open play areas, and a collection of more than 50,000 items.
This area is not a quiet space. We often have programs or crafts in this area. While inside voices are appreciated, whispering is not required.

TumbleBooks are animated, talking picture books that teach kids the joy of reading in a format they’ll love.
They are created by taking existing picture books, adding animation, sounds, music, and narration to produce an electronic picture book (and some classics) that you can read, or have read to you.
Provides the book level of over 100,000 books. Type in the title of a book, topic, or author that you want to read to see the Book Level (BL) Points (AR pts) for books within your search criteria.
