There are two computer stations for children to use for research and homework, including to look up books in the catalog and access databases.  There are other computers and AWEs where they can play educational games.

Library Cards

Stoneham children are eligible for library card when they turn 5. A child’s application must be signed by a parent or legal guardian if they are in fifth grade or younger, and the adult must have a valid form of ID such as a license or utility bill so that staff can verify a Stoneham address.
