Watch our Facebook page for locations of our new title How Do You Wokka-Wokka?by Elizabeth Bluemle popping up at parks this summer--and then wokka-wokka along the trail as your family reads along with the book!
We LOVE summer! Come to our patio at the Dawe Branch to read or just relax in tranquility, have some refreshing cold drinks and get a variety of herbs for your home meals from our community herb garden.
Log onto the TumbleBooks site with your library membership to read along with high quality digital children’s picture and chapter books.
Want to access TumbleBooks from your Android or iOS devices? There’s an app for that! It’s free with an RDPL card and gives you full access. Visit any of our branches or https://www.rdpl.org/digital-content/ebooks for more information on the site, or go to the Apple Store or Google Play Store to download the app.
Check out our newly expanded Firehall Fun Factory at the Downtown Branch!
This is a creative space for children and their adults to learn and create together to invite curiosity, inspire wonder, and encourage playfulness.
The Firehall Fun Factory is always available, and includes “Loose Parts” (bins of things to kick the imagination in gear!), Lego, Magformers, puzzles, games, art supplies, a doll house, a play kitchen and more!
Reading is the best way to prepare kids for school! Children aged birth to five years (up to entering kindergarten) can join this self-paced literacy program to prepare them to be lifelong readers and learners! Register at any branch.
