Welcome to the Children's Department!

Welcome to the Children’s Department! The staff of the Children’s Department offers a variety of services to children birth through 6th grade, parents, teachers and others who work with children.

Staff members are happy to help you find whatever you need, from homework help to planning a children’s party or finding that special book you remember. We can also make suggestions for good books to read on a variety of reading levels and interests.

Stuffed Animal Giveaway

Stuffed Animals

Preview and handout of drawing tickets begins at 12:30 p.m.
Drawing begins at 1 p.m.

We have about 75-90 well-loved stuffed animals that need a new home. To make the selection of animals fair, we will hand out tickets which will be selected in a random order. When your ticket number is called, you may choose an animal. You can see the animals sitting on top of the Juvenile Fiction and Non-Fiction shelves on the Children's floor.

You must be present for the drawing to choose a stuffed animal.
