Trees in the Children's area of the libraryPhrases such as “Read” and “Row, row, row your boat” can be found imprinted on the trunks. You and your children can delight in the artistry while choosing which books to take home with you.

Children are enjoying the trees inside the children's sectionIf you are a fan of the hot summer weather, grab a book, smell the flowers, and relax outside on our second-story patio. There is a chair with your name on it!
