Welcome to the Conant Public Library Children’s Room!
We are located on the top floor of the Conant Public Library. Our collection features a wide variety of board books, picture books, easy readers, juvenile fiction and non-fiction, as well as children’s movies and audiobooks.
We offer many programs for children, including regular storytimes and bookclubs. Families are also invited to drop in and visit the Children's Room to play! Our early literacy center includes a puppet theater, puzzles, building blocks, sensory panels, and many toys. Additionally, our craft table features a new craft each week, available at all times with no registration necessary.
Children are encouraged to have their own library card at their parent’s discretion. For more information about obtaining a library card, please see our circulation policies here: http://sterlinglibrary.org/policies_circulation.asp.
