Children's Services, Main Library has games, toys, and puzzles available for checkout just like books!

Our collection features items that are educational and diverse--old favorites and new innovations. We've got something appropriate for children as young as 6 months old --try Perpeto or Tangiball. For that 96-year-old who still feels like a kid, check out Set or another great game in our collection.

We add to our collection regularly from such sources as Discovery Toys, Habba, Constructive Playthings and others. You can sample the best without buyer's remorse --especially if you have a child who may only love something for a week or two.

Come in and check out our toys!
