At the south end of our library we have a vast Children's Area full of books to fill kids with wonder and excitement. Plush chairs and tables allow for excellent space to sit and read to your children for a relaxing afternoon. We also have a collection of DVDs and Audio Books for kids at this end of the library.
Be sure to check into our 1,000 Books before Kindergarten program for younger kids as well to foster their reading habits and enjoyment. Ask any staff member about signing up and getting a packet to get your little one started!
ABC Mouse is an excellent learning program for kids and thanks to Age of Learning we have it available for free here at Rock County Community Library. It is accessible on the computers in our computer lab, just ask any of our staff about using it with your children.
On the opposite end of the library we have a room dedicated to our young adult and teen patrons. This room is filled with a broad collection of books, graphic novels, and audio books to quench the ever expanding mind of teens as they grow. The room is a safe space meant just for our teen patrons starting from the time school gets out until our closing, it has a large table to conduct group meetings or homework projects and a few cushy chairs to simply sit and take a reading break.
Our Teen Book club is an opportunity for local teens to join together to read and discuss a book with each other and a librarian. Our Teen Book Club is currently on hiatus at the moment. However, if you have an interested teen please stop by or call the library at (507)449-5040 to sign them up for the next session.
