The McIntosh Memorial Library Children’s Department is a fun and safe place for children and families to gather and explore. Inside the Department we offer a Comfort Room, a Family Restroom, Program Room, Computer Area, and Play Space (not available at this time). All of the new children’s items are located just across from the Play Area on the New Arrivals Wall. Please enjoy our growing collection of books, AV materials, magazines, Discovery Packs, and Science Kits. Special programming is offered for children of all ages.  Visit the calendar section on this website for upcoming children’s programs that are scheduled.
