Children's Services provides special library facilities for all young patrons through sixth grade and for those adults interested in working with children. Throughout the year the staff provides scheduled tours, class visits, unique displays, family and special programs, and school visits. Programs for younger children include registered toddler and preschool storytime sessions. Assistance with research and reading guidance is provided by staff.
