The library is a great resource for materials and programming to encourage young readers and learners. On these pages, you’ll find reading suggestions, homework help and the calendar of activities including our regular storytimes. Enjoy!

Staff Pick of the Month

From vanished civilizations to treasure troves and everything in between, this National Geographic Kids book presents a variety of mysteries in a colorful and attractive format. Some you may have heard of, while others are bound to be new. Read it cover to cover, or pick and choose topics, but whatever you do, don’t skip this book!
