The Children’s Room of the library is specifically
designed to house library materials meeting the needs and interests
of children, birth through grade 5, and their adults. It is located
downstairs, opposite the Art Gallery, in the Amos Memorial Public
Library. A wide variety of activities, play areas, and materials
make up the environment of the Children’s Room.
Children may take an imaginary journey in our boat,
curl up with a good book, or create at our Lego Table. Adults may
sit in our rocking chair and share a favorite story with a child.
Before leaving the library’s world of adventure
and learning be sure to look through books, select some to entertain
or teach for many hours of enjoyment at home. (Visit
our library materials page) Besides books select audio-books,
magazines, Hooked on Phonics Kits, or children’s
videos and DVDs for home use. There is a Parenting Collection, housed
in the Children’s Room, to assist with the challenges of parenthood.
On any visit to the library parents and children
may use one of our multi-media computers located in the Children’s
Room. Internet computers, gaming computers, and educational learning stations are all available. Patrons wishing to explore this technology may check-in at the Children's Desk.
Special activities are offered throughout the year
for children of all ages, (Visit our programs
