Welcome to the Redwood Children’s Library and Athenaeum!
We are located in the Carol & Les Ballard Annex, at 10 Redwood Street, in Newport, RI - across the street from the main library building. This recently renovated Victorian house offers our young members a cozy space to read, create, and make new friends. Our shelves are piled high with children’s books, and our cupboards are well stocked with arts and crafts supplies. You will not find computers in our Children's Library, instead we have stocked our Toy Room with puzzles, push and pull toys, instruments, and Montessori and Waldorf toys that encourage young children to build their imagination, promote social skills, and advance physical development.
Stop by during our open hours to browse the shelves, color, or 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. Both members and non-members are welcome to attend our Story Time and Toddler Open Play programs.
