About Our Children's Department
Our Children's Department encompasses the entire second floor of the library. It is home to thousands of books, magazines, DVDs, and audiobooks, as well as a variety of puzzles and board games. We also have a puppet theater and, of course, computers.
Our Children's Department is a very pleasant place. It has large windows with lovely views of the river, and there are comfy places to sit and read. Be sure to check it out with your kids next time you visit the Library.
Many varied programs and events are offered throughout the year. Some are tailored to specific age groups and grade-levels, while some are programs that all ages will enjoy. Parents are expected to attend activities with children in the youngest age groups.
The types of programs offered are constantly changing and evolving as our audience changes and evolves. For information on what programs we currently offer, please see the online calendar, the Library's newsletter, and our Facebook pages, or just come into the Library to find out more about what's going on.
Programs for Teens
Kids ages 11 to 17 are considered Teens. They have their own librarian, and they have their own programs listed on the Library Calendar. More information about their programs can be found on the jessesmithteens web site, and on the Teen Page in the Library's Newsletter.
Registration for Storytimes & Programs
Whenever registration is required for any program or event, signups generally begin three to four weeks prior to the program. Some programs fill up very quickly, so it's a good idea to register early. Pre-registration helps us ensure that the program will provide the best experience for your child.
Registration may be done in person or by phone (401-710-7800) during regular library hours.
All children's programs will be cancelled if classes in the Burrillville Public Schools are cancelled, even if the library elects to remain open.
If you have questions or are interested in certain types of programs for your child, please speak with our Children's Librarians. New ideas about how we can best serve the children of our community are always welcome.
