The Weezie Library for Children

Something for Children of All Ages

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more you learn, the more places you’ll go.” – Dr. Seuss

Come visit us at the Weezie Library for Children!

You’ll find a wide variety of materials in different formats – books, Playaways, DVDs, magazines, reference materials, and foreign language books. Read & Play Kits for younger children explore a theme by pairing books with games in one bag!

Check out STEM kits include books and toys for children to explore different STEM principles. You can also find a selection of board games for family fun on a rainy day.
