PPL has a strong (and long) tradition of serving kids & families with great collections, programs, and services designed to build kids’ love of reading and discovery, as well as engaging with parents, teachers, and other child educators.
Every PPL location has a dedicated area just for kids, for reading, exploring, and enjoying our programs.

PPL’s Children’s Services Team has put together a collection of books, resources, and other events for educators and others who take care of children.
Schools and community groups can also call the library to set up tours, story programs, booktalks, and research instruction. In addition, the Children’s Library staff offer outreach programs to schools, day cares, and community centers to talk about the wonders of reading and kids’ learning resources.
