Children’s Programs

The Children’s Department offers a variety of programs including:

  • Story Times range in ages from 8 months to 2nd grade. The story times focus on early literacy and creating a love of books, music and art.
  • Summer Reading is a fun event that promotes the continuation of reading in order to prevent the summer slide.
  • We also provide a variety of special programs throughout the year that have included Lego Club, crafts, movies, a pajama drive and many more.

Check out our calendar for upcoming programs.

Personalized Reading List

Kids (or their parents/teachers, on their behalf) can fill out a form for a customized list of book suggestions. The more information you are able to share, the more likely you are to like our suggestions. This service is private; no one will see the information you share or the list we create for you except Cathy, the Children’s Librarian.

You can also try out our Picture Book Bundles service for younger kids!

The Children’s Room has multiple copies of the books on the Massachusetts Children’s Book Awards Book List.
