The Youth Services Department is located at the Main Library and offers materials from birth to young adult. You can stock up on library books by submitting a Book Bundle form.

In the Youth Services Department, there are a variety of scheduled programs (including AHA! Night), computers for patrons 17 and under, Funbrary and Wonderbook collections, and youth books in Spanish.  Digital books for youth can be found on TumbleBooksOverDrive/Libby, and Hoopla.
