Great children's programs developed for specific age groups. I'm most familiar with the pre-school groups. Most of them fill up pretty quickly so register in advance. The Librarians are very capable and make everyone feel welcome.

A very modern library, with computer stations and plenty of quiet reading nooks. Good lighting in the shelves. The collection is first rate, including recorded books. The reference staff is helpful and knowledgeable.
