Little Ones in the Library

Do your children love coming to the Library? It was Karson’s last day of summer vacation today, and his mother told him he could choose anything he liked to do on his special day. Six Flags? The Zoo? Chuck E. Cheese? No! Our little bibliophile said “Let’s go to the Library, Mom.” There is something extra special about the glint in a child’s eye when he finds the perfect book about robots, ponies, detectives, racecars, bunnies, or dinosaurs, and we do our best everyday to make sure that the Children’s Library is a welcoming, comfortable, and downright fun place to share with your little ones. Worried about your baby being too noisy, or your toddler wanting all of the Thomas books? Don’t be! The staff in the Children’s Library has been chosen for their friendly, warm attitude, and will always endeavor to make your experience be everything you hoped it would. So for all of our library friends, here is a list of books all about libraries. If you’ve never visited us before, these are great titles to familiarize your child with libraries, and all of the wonderful things offered there. We look forward to seeing you soon.
