Children's Programs & Services
Children's programThroughout the year, we offer regular and special programming for kids of all ages. During the summer, we have many programs and a reading program to keep your kids excited about reading. Come say hello to the fish, play in the Little Room, visit the rocket ship, and pick out a new load of books, music, and movies to borrow.


Play and Learn
Sweep the floor, dust the shelves, and wash the dishes in our play area all about taking care of the space in which we live. The Play and Learn Space was funded by a grant from the Minnesota Department of Education using federal funding, Library Services and Technology Act [LS 00-13-0024-13].
