Youth - Library


The youth library offers a large collection of materials - from board books to chapter books, in addition to audio books and magazines.
We offer Busy Bags with stories and toys organized by themes and STEAM kits that engage children and encourage creative thinking. In addition, we offer a wide variety of programs and activities for youth of all ages. 
Many of our activities are posted on our DPL-Kids Facebook site. Be sure to like our page so you are aware of upcoming events.

Online Preschool Storytimes via Facebook

Storytime with Ms. Kathleen will be offered Wednesday mornings at 10:00 am on our DPL-Kids Facebook Page beginning December 13th.
Videos will be available on our page for a few days following the premiere.  These storytimes are about 20 minutes in length. 
We are also offering a weekly craft that corresponds to each video.  These crafts are only available while supplies last, so be sure to stop in the library if you’re interested.
