Children’s Services: Elsie May Colvin Children’s Corner
The children’s collection contains fiction, non-fiction, audio books on CD and DVD, and BIG books!
Story Time is open to all preschoolers each Friday at 11 am. No registration is necessary. Reading and enjoyment of books is key, but this time also encourages socialization and offers crafting for our younger patrons.
The library also offers a summer reading program. We send out flyers through Everett Area School District in April each year. Please call the library if you do not receive a flyer or your child does not attend this school district. There are a variety of ways that your child can participate in this program.
Just looking for something for your child to do. We offer passive programming. We have a huge collection of blocks and Legos. Other passive programming is offered and changes from month to month.
