The library is a family-friendly space where you and your children are always welcome to read, play and explore together. We ask that that an adult supervise children under the age of 10 while they are in the library.

Play and learn

Visit the Children’s area with your preschooler and have fun with ten early learning panels designed to foster literacy skills through hands-on interaction and play. Purchased with a provincial literacy equity grant, these panels are more than just entertainment. They help children hone:
•  alphabet knowledge 
•  fine motor skills 
•  imagination

Make up your own tale on our spin-a-story panel, make a handprint on our heat-sensitiveboard, spell your name out of magnetic letters and so much more!
