We offer many items ranging from board books to board games. The Children's Room is organized so the central bins contain the majority of our Easy Reader Picture Books (E). The west shelves contain the late alphabet authors and favorite series books such as: Clifford, Disney, Magic School Bus, Arthur and many more.
For beginning readers we have two collections: Primary and Reader. Primary is for kids just starting out and the Reader section is for the more advanced early readers which include early chapter books. The Primary section contains early non-fiction books as well. These are located on the east shelves in the Children's Room.
The Nonfiction Books are located on the free-standing shelf. This section spans a wider range of reading levels but includes many books for younger children.
