JUST FOR KIDS

Children and Youth Books at the Cutler

Our children's and youth large-format picture books are organized into two collections, "First Five" (F5), for introducing kids to books and reading; and for independent readers with longer attention spans, our "Youth Collection" (YC).

There are storybooks and learning (non-fiction) books in each of the categories as well as a collection of picture books that are not categorized in either F5 or YC: these are organized by the first letter of the author's last name in their own area of the library. There are also many board books that can be borrowed, as well as puzzles and games. We have an assortment of toys and building blocks of various types, too! Crayons, paper, scissors, and glue sticks or tape are always available, too, and while our space is modest, we encourage families to check out our "hands-on" craft bins to use either at the library or take home. Children using borrowed craft bins or craft supplies should always be supervised.
