Welcome to the Valley Cottage Library's Children's Room! You’ll find a wonderful collection of materials for children of all ages. We also have a collection of Early Literacy appropriate toys and activities for little ones, including a puppet theater, puzzles, blocks, dress up clothes, and a doll house. For older children, the Children's Room has several computers, study areas, board games, and activities.

A child's library experience begins in infancy by sharing familiar Mother Goose rhymes and little board books. Preschoolers and early elementary school children enjoy the world of stories and illustration as they choose from a vast array of picture books. Older children explore further worlds of fiction and non-fiction for pleasure as well as school assignments.

The Children’s Services Staff is dedicated to helping children and their families make full use of our materials and services.

A vast array of developmentally appropriate books, audio visual and other materials are here to be borrowed and enjoyed. We hope you’ll use your library often. It’s the best bargain in town!
