Children's Department

The Collection

Come down to where stories are told, songs are sung and young minds are exposed to the wonders of the world.

The Children's Department serves children from birth through age 12, their caregivers, teachers, and members of the general public interested in children's literature. We present weekly programs for babies, toddlers, preschoolers and the caregivers of these children. Check the Compass or the Pratt website for specially scheduled programs for children between the ages of 6-12.
