The Children’s Room

Panorama of the room, cropped, 5-2016

A wonderland of activities and things to borrow!

  • The Children’s Room is spacious and fun. So many things to do! There’s a train table, checkers and dominoes, puzzles, computers, and iPads with apps for young children.
  • Look to see what’s new at the Imagination Hub, our center for ever-changing and fun activities and projects. Drop in any time. Many activities support early literacy/pre-literacy skills, but there are craft projects and activities for older children as well.
  • There are lots of great programs for kids of all ages. Some ongoing program series include Wonderful Ones, Tot Tuesdays, Build-a-Mania, Reading with Dogs, Make It!, Junior Chef, and Stories on the Lawn. There are also plenty of story/craft programs, and some very cool STEAM and Tech/Robotics programs.
  • Kids in our library district (Guilford Township) can get a library card of their own, and borrow books, DVDs, audio books, magazines, Playaway Views, and music on CD. New materials are always arriving and easy to find. The library also offers many free downloadables for kids – ebooks, audio books, movies, music…
  • If you have questions about the library or want help finding something, you’ll find someone friendly at our help desk!
