About the Sam L. Cohen Children’s Library
The Sam L. Cohen Children’s Library houses over 32,000 books, movies, audiobooks, toys, art exhibits, and more. There are comfy nooks, big beanbags, and seating for reading. There are computers available for homework help and internet use, as well as special computers with younger kids’ read-along books and games, and special iPads loaded with children’s apps.
We offer weekly programs year round – Finger Fun for Babies, Tales for Twos, and Preschool Story Time — as well as special programs and Summer Reading! Visit our calendar for upcoming events. You can also spend time in our Family Place playroom.
Each of our other branches has a section specially designed for kids’ reading and programs as well.
Schools and Community groups can 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.
