Youth Library

The Youth Library, occupying the majority of the Library's lower level, is designed primarily with younger visitors in mind. With a variety of materials and programs to encourage community literacy at all ages, you and yours are sure to find your child's next favorite book, movie, or hobby here.

Take a walk through our 1000 Books Before Kindergarten Forest, make something great during Maker Mondays, cook up something delicious on Tasty Tuesdays, or even have dinner and a story at the Family Supper Book Club.


Early Literacy

The time before a child enters school or begins reading on their own is the most important time in their learning. Birth to 3 years is the key
time when a child’s brain is most able to develop and form the foundation for all they will learn in the future.

Here at the S. Verna Fowler Library, we support and encourage all of our readers and readers-in-training from the earliest of ages.

Find out more about our efforts, including additional resources and information on the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program.

Early Reader's Hub

Book Buddies


Take a look at these great kits made perfect for early readers and readers-in-training.  Each kit comes with a book and a plush stuffed animal, toy, or puppet that helps to bring the story to life.  These kits allow parents/guardians to create an interactive reading experience for the young readers in their lives.

Take a look at the Library's Book Buddy collection in our online catalog.

Books & More!

The Youth Library is more than just books. While our "Kid-Friendly Catalog" does have plenty of options for all reading levels, from board books to young adult, you can also find audiobooks & playaways, along with reading kits much like our Book Buddies and others.
