Inside the Children’s Department: What to Expect

  • We have removed all toys and seating, and tables have been turned into display spaces.  Take-and-Make crafts are available, and we are always happy to help you!
  • The Children’s Department is open for browsing only.
  • Patrons and staff are required to wear a mask at all times while inside the library, per the Governor’s mandate. Masks should fully cover the nose and mouth.  Children under 2 are exempt.
