Reading skills are developed at an early age and the library is a great place to introduce young children to books. All libraries offer extensive collections of books for children, from picture books for young children to novels for older kids.

Our collection also includes children’s books on tape and CD and children’s movies and programs on video and DVD. We offer video games in Wii, PlayStation, and Xbox formats, as well as computer games.

Story times for children are offered on a weekly basis at the Eden, Mayodan, Reidsville, and Stoneville libraries. Every year the library sponsors the Summer Reading Program, Summer Reading Club, and Reading Is Fundamental program. Special children’s programs are held throughout the year, including pajama story times and events for Children’s Book Week.
