The Mead Children’s Library provides materials and resources for families and children of all ages in order to, “ignite, excite and inspire!”

You can attend a story-time, explore science and art during STEAM programming, work on homework, and talk to a librarian to find the answers to your questions, here or at one of our branches. We continue to fashion programming to fill the needs of our community, as well as cooperating with public organizations to increase the quality of life in our community.

We have a wide range of books, movies, video games, audiobooks, music, and more to meet the developmental, educational, and recreational needs of our patrons: infants through ‘tweens.
