Now you can make an appointment to come into the Library in order to browse the Children’s Room's collection. The first session is Tuesday, July 14 but you can reserve a time right away. For now, the hours are from 10 -12pm Tuesday through Friday and 9-11am on Saturdays. Please review our Browsing FAQ before you make an appointment, but here are some highlights:
Please make every effort to send only one person to browse and to select materials for your family. However, we understand this is not always possible. Before bringing young children with you to select materials, please consider whether the child is capable of social distancing.
Adult/teen and Children's Room browsing sessions are at different times and require separate appointments.
