Children

Purpose

For kids, the fun and learning are just beginning. The Pelham Library has a beautiful and fun Children’s Department full of great books, movies, and audiobooks. Ms. Rebecca and Ms. Ashley love helping kids find just the right books, and we are always planning fun and educational programs for the whole family. 

In addition to our great programming throughout the year, we have a great summer reading program. This year’s theme is Tails and Tales and due to Covid 19 will be a hybrid program with virtual and in person activities! For more information on Summer Reading click here.

Personalized Book Recommendations

Need some books to keep your kids busy? Need something for a school project? Have a reluctant reader?  Let a librarian make your next book selections for you! Our Children's Staff loves to share great books with kids! Click the link below to fill out a request form, tell us a little about your child and the type of books they are interested in, and within 72 hours a librarian will choose several books we think they will love! We will place them on hold for you, then you can come pick them up inside or through our Curbside Pick-up. Curbside Pickup FAQ

Storytime Goes Virtual

Due to Covid 19, we are not currently gathering together indoors for large programs and events, but that doesn’t mean we are going to quit sharing some of our favorite stories with you! 

New Storytime Videos

Join us on Wednesday for new storytime videos from Ms. Ashley! Videos will be posted to Facebook and YouTube. No video will be posted on Wednesdays when we have Storytime in the Park

NEW THIS SUMMER: Storytime in the Park

On three Wednesdays at 9:30am Storytime will be live and in person at the large pavilion in City Park. The pavilion is located just down the street from the library near the Rec Center.
