Grafton Public Library

Kids

The Children’s Room strives to be a fun place for children and families to learn and read together. We offer a wide variety of materials for learning and fun, including materials like books, media and games; toys like blocks, puzzles, puppets, and a play kitchen; and technology like computers.

PROGRAMS

Most weeks during the school year, we offer a variety of storytime programs for ages birth through 5. Check the event calendar to see what’s happening this week!

We also offer programs and special events for kids up to and including age 12, such as:

  • PAWSing to READ with therapy animals for kids in grades 1, 2, and 3
  • First Fridays — music and movment with Mr. Kim from Appletree Arts — on the first Friday of each month, for children ages 2-5.
  • Special events and hosted performers

Please note that due to our limited space, the Children’s Room will be CLOSED when programs are taking place. In winter months, if school is canceled, library programs are cancelled.
