Children's Department


train book cases in the Children's Library

The Children’s Department of the Wallingford Public Library serves children from birth through fifth grade, as well as their parents and teachers. We offer both resources and programming to encourage literacy, inspire creativity, and instill a lifelong love of learning.

Stop by soon to say hello to our fish, visit the Nature Corner, check out our Ready to Read Red Bags for preschoolers, and explore our train station. There’s always a Librarian available to help you find what you’re looking for and answer any questions you may have.

The Children’s Department has weekly storytimes for babies, toddlers, and preschoolers. We also offer monthly programs for school age children including: The Break-It, Make-It Lab, Lego Club, FETCH some fun on Friday, and Chess Club, and we host exciting one-time events including craft programs, author visits, music programs, and many more! For a full list of our upcoming events, check out our Children’s Calendar.
