When kids have questions, the books of David Macaulay are a solid place to start seeking answers. Macaulay’s nonfiction explores the art, design, and mechanics of buildings, technology, the human body, and more. His books are heavily illustrated and visually engaging, with clear writing that respects the interests and abilities of children. Come to the library to browse his fascinating work for yourself!

The Main Library Children's Room "READ" installation, in honor of National Library Week, is constructed entirely of origami.
It's National Library Week! Last week you got a sneak peek at preparations for the origami installation at the Main Library. It went up on Saturday, and now the Oak street face of the library (with the entrance to the Children's Room) reminds you of just one of the many fun things you can do inside or outside your library. A group of preschoolers are checking it out...arriving for Monday morning storytime. Come see it for yourself...but don't wait! The installation will stay up through Saturday
