Children

Purpose

For kids, the fun and learning are just beginning. The Pelham Library has a beautiful and fun Children’s Department full of great books, movies, and audiobooks. Ms. Rebecca and Ms. Kaylen love helping kids find just the right books, and we are always planning fun and educational programs for the whole family. 

In addition to our great programming throughout the year, we have a great summer reading program. This year’s theme is Imagine Your Story and due to Covid 19 will be completely virtual! For more information on Summer Reading click here.

Personalized Book Recommendations

Need some books to keep your kids busy? Need something for a school project? Have a reluctant reader?  Let a librarian make your next book selections for you! Our Children's Staff loves to share great books with kids! Click the link below to fill out a request form, tell us a little about your child and the type of books they are interested in, and within 72 hours a librarian will choose several books we think they will love! We will place them on hold for you, then you can come pick them up through our Curbside Pick-up. Curbside Pickup FAQ 
Children's Fiction or Non-Fiction


Storytime Goes Virtual

Due to Covid 19, we are not currently gathering together for programs and events, but that doesn’t mean we are going to quit sharing some of our favorite stories with you! 

New Storytime Videos

Join us every Wednesday for a new storytime video from Ms. Kaylen! Each week will feature one letter from the alphabet and will be posted to Facebook and YouTube.

Craft Kits

We will also have a new take and go craft kit perfect for our preschool friends. Crafts will match the Storytime theme for the week and can be picked up from the front of the library. 

Book Bundles

A Book Bundle is a set of three preschool friendly books that match the storytime theme of the week! One of the librarians will select a Book Bundle for you, check it out to you, and bring it outside for Curbside pickup.
