About the Lucia K. Ginter Children's Room

gettingbooks-1The children’s room, located on the lower level, serves children from birth through 6th grade and their families.

For our youngest readers, still learning to turn pages, check out board books. Also, check out our TREET bags.

All ages are invited to browse our picture book bins, fiction shelves and audio books. You will find entertaining, informative, and beautiful stories.

Early readers will find leveled easy readers to strengthen their new skill.

Confident readers will find the nonfiction section useful for informational reading or to support school projects.

On our Parent shelf, parents can find books on topics from potty training to teenagers.
