The Junior Room offers a variety of weekly, monthly, and special programs for kids from birth – 8th grade. Click the images for program descriptions.
For the remainder of 2020, all programs will be held virtually. We look forward to the day that we can be together again.

Join Miss Rachel for some Friday Fun at noon on Facebook Live. She’ll share some songs, puppets, felt stories, pretty much everything but the kitchen sink (although we wouldn’t be surprised!) The videos will be available to view on our Facebook.
Every month we’ll share a tutorial on Facebook Live for a different craft you can try out at home. The video will be pre-recorded so you can pause and go back if you get lost. Have a craft you’d like to learn? Let us know!
Join Rachel and Nicole once a month on Facebook Live at 11 am. They’ll talk about new books they like, a staff pick or two, and give short blurbs on a bunch of books. Rachel will cover kids and teen books and Nicole will talk about books for adults. The videos will be available to watch on our Facebook.
