Children

PLEASE NOTE:  There is no Baby Lapsit on Sept. 13th or Preschool Story Time on Sept. 15.

The Children's Room at the Randall Library serves children as well as their parents, guardians, and others who work with children. Our staff is here to help find materials and answer questions.
 
Children may sign up for a library card when they enter kindergarten, or when they turn 5 years old. All that is required is a parent's ID with current address and signature.

Looking for titles for your child that are at a high enough reading level but have age appropriate content?  Check out the lists @  READING BEYOND.
