Children’s Services

Welcome to the Goodnow Library Children’s Department!

Learn about the Children’s Summer Reading Program 2016

The children’s room is a welcoming environment for kids and families to learn and play together. We provide a rich and diverse collection of educational and recreational materials, in addition to interactive programs for kids of all ages. Come by to meet your Children’s Librarians, sign up for a library card, and check out our collection of books, audio books, ebooks, music, movies, magazines, games, foreign language materials, reference books and databases. You can even try out one of our iPads, which are pre-loaded with fun (and educational!) apps. We’re a place where you can meet your friends and new faces, share ideas and experiences, and just hang out.
