Through appropriate materials and programming, we will provide a safe, interesting and inviting place for children of all ages to learn from the time they take their first steps toward independence through the time they are reading, researching and learning on their own.  Children and caregivers will find books, DVDs, books with CDs, eBooks, puzzles, toys, Early Literacy computers, touch-and-see board, magazines, and children’s programming in SCPL’s Children’s Department.
