For Children

Programs and services especially for children.


Programs are offered in Winter/Spring, Summer and Fall.

Sessions include:

Toddlers (1 and 2 year olds). This program has lots of movement, songs, rhymes and finger plays, all of which help a child prepare to become a strong reader.

Preschoolers (3 years and up). This program includes lots of stories, songs, and activities that will reinforce concept learning necessary for reading.

Family Story Time (All ages).  Meet for stories and fun for children of all ages and their parents/caregivers.

Lego Club and After School Program (Kindergarten through 4th grade). Programs feature a light snack, read-alouds and a variety of activities including kid science, movement, board games, puppet play and crafts.

Preschoolers Attending Programs:  Children attending preschool library programs should be delivered into the building by a parent/guardian or their designated caregiver who will be called the responsible person.  The responsible person must remain in the building until the conclusion of the program or leave emergency instructions and cell phone numbers with the library staff and be back at the library prior to the conclusion of the program. The responsible person must be in at least the 5th grade.

Photos may be taken of story time groups and other library functions and used for library publicity.  This includes posting on the Nevada Public Library website.
