We care about your children!
The Tredyffrin Township Libraries’ Children’s departments offer many learning opportunities for children from birth to age 12. Both Libraries have a wonderful selection of fiction and nonfiction books, films and music. We are devoted to providing information children need to be successful. While encouraging reading is the keystone of what we do, we also offer programs that ignite imaginations and learning through music, art, science, history & more! At the libraries, children can explore new worlds of interest and discover ideas that can change their lives.
