Welcome to the Park Falls Public Library Children’s Services page! The Children's Services Department serves children from birth through age 12, their caregivers, teachers, and members of the general public interested in children's literature. The goal of our services and collection is to enrich, challenge, educate, and entertain the young members of our community.

We are here to assist children in finding books for classes and to enjoy. We are also pleased to help students with their homework using both print and online materials.  The library staff is dedicated to helping children  learn to read, develop literacy skills, and maintain a lifelong love of books and reading.

 Our Children’s Services collection is also great resource for teachers and educators looking for materials for class projects and papers. Some of the services we provide include preparing a selection of materials for use in preschool and elementary classrooms, setting aside special collections for homework assignments, and offering library tours. We are happy to collaborate with our public and private schools as well as homeschool parents, to further the education and literacy skills of children in the Park Falls area.

Our collection features a broad selection of high quality fiction and non-fiction for independent readers, a large collection of picture books for children learning to read independently or together with a parent, many audiobooks on CD, and a wide variety of DVDs ranging from popular children’s television to educational materials, puzzles, puppets, and literacy kits.

Programming for children includes “Block Party” Lego Club on Mondays, Baby Storytime the last Tuesday of each month, a weekly Preschool Storytime on Wednesday mornings, Summer Reading events and activities in during the summer, and many special annual events throughout the year: Dr. Seuss’ Birthday Party in March, National Library Week programs and Money Smart Week programs in April, May the 4th be with you (Star Wars day) and Free Comic Book Day in May, and much, much more. For information about our programs, meeting times and dates, and any changes, please check our calendar and Facebook page. We are always looking for community input and involvement to expand, improve, and develop our children’s programs.
