Your Family Destination

Open seven days a week your children’s library is your family destination.  We have the very best books for every age group and the expert staff to help you find them.

The Welch Wing of the Brown Library is one of the best known children’s facilities in the state.  Whimsical designs reflecting the area’s wildlife welcome children and adults alike in an atmosphere dedicated to nurturing learning and the love of books and reading.  Exciting storytime programs and a five week Family Place workshop series allows parents to connect with community resources and to meet new friends.

 Programs for all age groups – including the charming canine participants in the Puppy Love reluctant reader program – keep families coming back again and again.  Online resources like “Tumble Books” allow parents and grandparents to enjoy books with children online when the library is closed. Click on "Tumblebooks" on any page.

 Hours:  Weekdays: 9am – 8pm
             Weekends: 12pm – 5pm


 Call for group tours.

Cards are free.  Use them to borrow books, music, children’s movies and early learning materials and kits.

 Convenient parking in the municipal lot directly behind the library.
