AT THE BENICIA PUBLIC LIBRARY, KIDS CAN

  • Get their own library card

  • Borrow from an exciting collection of books, magazines, and other materials selected especially for children

  • Come to special events and participate in free programs like the Summer Reading Program

  • Talk to a children’s librarian to get answers to their questions, or to find a great book to read next

The Children’s Services Department employs one full-time professional children’s librarian, who (along with the rest of the library staff) provides the following services: 

REFERENCE AND INFORMATION:

Have a question? Need an answer? That’s what the library is here for. You can call the Reference Desk on the phone (707) 746-4343, or come to the Public Services Desk and ask a librarian in person. Whether it’s research for homework, a personal problem, or just for fun, a children’s librarian can help you find what you need.

READER ADVISORY:

Not sure what to read next? Having trouble finding a book you like? Let the children’s librarian help! She is an expert in children’s literature, she understands kids, and she is always happy to suggest something. Or look at one of the Library’s lists of recommended books, and maybe you’ll see something you like there.

PROGRAMMING:

The children’s librarian provides a wide variety of children’s programs to promote reading, teach a love of books, and encourage kids and their families to come to the library. Take a look at the list of Special Events and Programs for Kids to find out what’s happening at the library!
