The Children's Library Open to Members for Access to Books

  • Request a Book Bundle for handpicked books for young readers.

  • Request a grab-bag of craft supplies to go with your Book Bundle.

  • A ticket is required for each visitor to the Children's Library.

  • Up to 6 members at a time may visit the Children's Library/Whitridge Room briefly for book selection. Because of capacity limits, there may be a short wait before you may enter the Children's Library.
