About the Children’s Room
When your kids enter the Children’s Room they’ll be greeted with warm smiles and a friendly environment. Children can enjoy watching our aquarium fish, or creating stories in the puppet theatre. Our toddler area is a comfortable space for children to play games, explore, crawl around, read and be read to. For older kids doing homework, there are quiet study areas and computers with filtered Internet access. While your kids are having fun, check out our great selection of parenting books.
Join us for our seasonal weekly story times where your kids will enjoy being read to, singing songs and creating a story specific craft. Newborns through 4 year olds are invited to register in January, June and September.*
Each month kids will explore new topics using books, crafts, science, technology and more. Programs are held on Thursday(Kindergarten-3rd grade). Program does not run in July and August.*
Each month kids between 3-5 years old will explore new topics using books, crafts, science, technology and more. Program is held on Thursdays at 2:00 pm. Program does not run in August.*

Kids in grades 4-6 will enjoy meeting with peers to discuss the book of the month. The group meets once a month in the evening. Kids get to keep the books after the discussion. Registration dates are noted in the calendar of events. *

Use your imagination to create something using Lego(c) bricks. We provide the bricks you provide the inspiration. Please note you will have to take apart your creations when you leave so the next child can build.
Please do not leave children alone. Parents remember very young children may try to swallow the Lego(c) so beware.
