Services for Children – Books Are Just the Beginning!
The Children’s Services Department at the Durham Public Library is dedicated to fostering a love of reading and learning by offering a diverse array of books, audiovisual materials, toys and games, and fun and educational programs for children from birth to age 12.
From board books for babies to picture books, puzzles, and puppets, the Durham Public Library offers a variety of resources for young children that will entertain while helping them learn basic literacy skills.
Weekly storytimes are offered for children from 18 months to 5 years and special programs are offered periodically. Check our program schedule for a current list of events.
