TPL offers a variety of programs for children and families. For our families with children 0-6, we offer weekly story times for Babies, Toddlers, and the whole family. For elementary aged children, we offer weekly programs focused on Lego building, creative writing, making and creating, and much more. Please check out our list of individual programs with their respective age focus. Also, take a look at the calendar for upcoming special events on evenings and weekends!

Our regular, yearly programs for children run seasonally from September to early December, and mid-January to April. Our summer programs run throughout June and July. In order to prepare awesome programs for children and families, we do not offer regular programs in the months of May, August, and mid-December to mid-January. The department is still open during these times, so please to come to see us!

We have some awesome apps and online resources for kids and families as well. Be sure to check out Tumblebooks (online picture and chapterbooks as well as cool videos), Overdrive and Libby (books, audiobooks, and movies that you can check out on your own personal device), as well as Live Homework Help (a free tutoring website available each day from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m.), and much more!
