Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and in accordance with official directives, the Library is closed until further notice. The Library has implemented a strict work-from-home policy for staff, but we are available to help you remotely. We have a robust collection of online resources and are offering virtual programming for children and teens, allowing you to explore the world from the security of your home. We know that many parents, caregivers and educators are looking for ways to learn and engage virtually. While an online environment cannot replace a classroom, or a trip to a physical library, we hope this list of resources curated by our children’s and teens’ services staff will be useful.


The Library’s children’s and teens’ services department is a bustling place that represents an important part of the Library’s activity. Teens and their families are encouraged to make use of  our digital resources. While an online environment cannot replace a classroom, or a trip to a physical library, we hope these resources will be useful.
