Youth Services' main focus is on our younger population. We provide reader's advisory to beginning readers, help older children pick out chapter books, and recommend novels and advanced books for teens and young adults. The Youth Services Department conducts several "Story Time" sessions per week, and offers many craft and educational workshops for our younger patrons. Computers and printing are also available for homework, entertainment, or research in the YS Department. We are located on the second floor of the library. Turn left when you exit the stairwell or elevator.
A StoryWalk® is an innovative way to get people of all ages out walking while reading children's picture books. Visit one the locations below, take a walk with your family, and read and follow the prompts on each story page.

Kite Day by Will Hillenbrand
"Bear and Mole build a kite and take it out on a windy day, but when the weather suddenly turns stormy there are unexpected consequences for some birds."
Claire Chapin Epps Family YMCA
