The Mayme Keith Children's Area gives kids their own space in the library, filled with books, DVDs, and many other things. Youth Services staff are always on hand to lend assistance. There are meeting and tutor rooms, a computers just for kids, a large program room, a garden, and so much more.
During the week, there are special programs for pre-schoolers and home-schoolers.
And our staff travels to area schools and daycares to share our books throughout the community.
