The Children`s Department
Shaker Library Children`s Rooms are exciting, busy places to visit. In a typical week, the Children`s Department sponsors a number of programs for children ranging in age from babies through sixth grade. Offerings include a variety of story times, after school craft activities, and creative writing, as well as special and seasonal events for the entire family.
Both libraries offer an outstanding assortment of board books for babies; picture books for young children; "Ready," "Set," "Go" books for beginning readers; juvenile fiction; and a comprehensive non-fiction collection that includes recreational and research material for children through grade eight.
Special collections at the Main Library include the Elaine "Boots" Fisher Collection of Newbery and Caldecott Medal and Honor books, the Coretta Scott King Collection, and the Parenting Collection. Both libraries also offer children`s books on CD and other audiovisual material, and magazines for children and parents.
