Our children’s room provides services for toddlers to middle schoolers. In addition to providing books to borrow, we offer a variety of programs. Throughout the year, local volunteers share their expertise in a wide range of topics. Periodically the library also participates in readathons.
Our goal is to make the children’s room a happy, inviting place for all children. This is more than just a place to check out books. It is a place to make friends, participate in fun and educational activities, and to feel connected with the New Paltz community. We hope their experiences at the Elting Library will encourage children to pursue reading throughout their lives. A child must be in kindergarten to obtain a library card.
