Welcome

A warm welcome awaits you in the Childrenís Room of the Valley Cottage Library. Youíll find a wonderful collection of materials for children of all ages. We also have a charming collection of Early Literacy appropriate toys and activites for little ones, including a puppet theater, puzzles, blocks, 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 can begin 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 Childrenís 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 youíll use your library often. Itís the best bargain in town!
