About the RLA Youth Program

*** The Redwood is closed on Monday, August 14th. ***

 

 

According to the charter of 1747, the Redwood Library and Athenaeum was built for “the propagation of virtue, knowledge and useful learning, having nothing in view but the good of mankind.”  When we consider the mission of the Redwood Children’s Library and Athenaeum, we are considering how the original mission applies to our young members. We will strive to develop in our youngest members a spirit of humanity, an appreciation of art and knowledge, and an aptitude for joyous learning through our collections and programs.


Our collection includes books, DVDs, and music in the areas of:

  • Juvenile Fiction and Non-Fiction
  • Young Adult Fiction and Non-Fiction
  • Parenting Materials
  • Professional Materials

Our programs, which are free and open to the public, include:


Our collection and programs also include the use of Montessori and Waldorf toys that members can check out just like books! Our toy collection also includes a selection of puzzles, push and pull toys, instruments, and a train table! Stop by during our open hours to play in the Toy Room. Extended hours and borrowing privileges are available for members, ask the Children's Library Assistant, or the Greeter at the Main Library, for details.
