The Youth Services Department functions as a children’s and young adult services area. Providing recreational and information materials for children, preschool through grade twelve, and materials of interest to parents, educators, students, writers, artists, and others concerned with children’s literature and book illustration.
In the Children's Department, you will find children's books, movies, magazines, and audiobooks that focus on children from birth to Grade 4. In our Juvenile and Tween sections, you can find many age-appropriate materials. The teen collection includes material for Grades 9-12.
Our Youth Services librarian is always glad to help you or your child to find just the right reading material to match the child's interest and reading level. Some of our books are marked with a yellow strip to help you find Lexile reading levels, the back of the book will have a sticker with the Lexile number assigned. We will gladly look up reading level information or show you how.
