About the Children’s Department
Beginning with babies, we offer board books and a great play area with early literacy toys plus comfortable seating for parents. For our preschool through 2nd grade visitors, we have a large selection of picture books and factual materials to enjoy and learn from. Another advantage is our easy reading beginning chapter books. These are pre-screened by our librarians and marked with colored dots to help parent choose the best book for their child’s reading success. Early literacy computers with awesome learning games to enjoy are available in Fishersville, Churchville, and Craigsville.
As children grow, they move to the junior department with materials for 3rd grade through through middle school. We work hard to offer best sellers and current materials with new books arriving daily – you’ll find everything from Diary of a Wimpy Kid and the Warriors series to the newest Newbery Medal winners.
In addition to our book collections, we offer a variety of fun programs and services that are designed to best meet your child’s needs. Click through the links above to learn more about each one.
