We serve children from birth through fifth grade and their families. With almost 8,000 items, including books, audiobooks, and movies, there is something for everyone to enjoy! New materials are always being added to ensure that the collection remains attractive and current. We are working hard to develop a culturally responsive collection that educates and inspires the children within our community.
Shared materials such as toys and computers have been removed from the Children’s Room to reduce risk of exposure. All commonly used surfaces are cleaned daily. Currently, the Children’s Room has an occupancy limit of 4 individuals (or one family at a time). We invite you to browse the collection for a maximum of 15 minutes.
If you wish to take home books, but would rather not browse the collection in person to make selections, submit a request to the “Book Bundles” form on the top right of the screen and our Youth Services Librarian, Carly, will be available to assist you.
Digital materials are readily available so that you are able to enjoy books, movies, and audiobooks from home. As a patron of the Palisades Library, you have access to many different online resources such as Hoopla! and Kanopy Kids.
We are working hard to ensure that engaging children’s programs are offered on a regular basis. Miss Carly hosts Bedtime Storytime every Wednesday evening from 7:00-7:30PM on Zoom. Please continue to visit our online calendar to stay up-to-date with upcoming craft kits, classes, performances, and contests.
