Children's Book Lounge

Enjoy some quiet time and reading in our children’s area.  Parents can relax with their little ones on the toddler friendly floor mats.  Older kids can use the reading booths to study, read, and learn with friends.  Games and puzzles are also available.


Children's Media Center

Need to research or write up something for a school project?  We’ve got you covered.  We have filtered workstations designed especially for our young patrons.


Special Events

We enjoy bringing our community together through our special events.  Some children programs that you will find throughout the year include book release parties, reading challenges, themed arts and craft projects, music and instrument exploration, family movie nights, storytimes, and the yearly Summer Reading Program which is packed with book adventures and fun.   


Storytime

Although our story time is geared toward children 18 months to 5 year olds, all are welcome!  We focus on 4 main areas of learning.
                                       READ-PLAY-SING-CREATE
The SHML Storytime includes an 11 a.m. STORY of the Day with MUSIC time, Webster’s featured books you can check out, and several stations that allow you to drop in when you can.  No need to register.  At our story times we like to BUILD-ITDRAW-IT, SCULPT-IT, and CRAFT-IT!  We also like MAKE-N-MUSIC and PLAY-N-SAFE.  We may even HIDE-N-READ! 
 

Special Note: Library policy says that children under six years of age must be accompanied by a responsible guardian at the library or at library programs.


Summer Reading Program

Looking forward to 2020!
