ALL ABOUT US

 

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 page) including preschool storytime and a Summer Reading Program. These are announced in the newspaper, on the radio, in the schools, and in the library.

 

A friendly, informed staff is here to help you find the library materials you need. Library cards are free and available to children with parental approval. (Visit our library card page)
