Children

New Children’s Books

Welcome

The JCPL Children’s Department strives to provide the highest quality materials, programs, and customer service possible. We are happy to assist you at the Children’s Desk during all library hours.

Children age 10 and under must be directly supervised at all times by a responsible adult or caregiver who is at least 14 years old. By working together, we can ensure that families create a lifetime of wonderful library memories.
