Children's Programs at JCPL
All of the programs offered by the Children's Services staff are designed to create an environment that will reinforce children's natural love of reading, language and storytelling. It is our mission to assist families in the important developmental task of building a foundation for lifelong literacy.

We welcome you to join us on the journey of a lifetime!
