In the Children's Department there is always something going on! Throughout the year we offer numerous programs for all age ranges.
Beginning in October and running through May with a small break in December and January, story time is a fun-filled, weekly 30 minute program that is age and developmentally appropriate for expectant parents and newborns through 5-year-old children.
During Fall break and Spring Break we offer three days of fun-filled activities for our school-age children from preschool to 5th grade.
Christmas time at the Library is the most wonderful time of the year! Santa comes to visit and we celebrate with snacks, crafts and family fun! This program is fun for all ages!
During February we celebrate Black History at the Library with various programs throughout the entire month. We have a program, essay contest and coloring contest. Ages vary for individual activities.
During the school year we offer a book club called Tween the Pages for children in grades 3 through 6. This "tween" book club meets to discuss various books. Books and a light snack are provided to participants.
Summer Reading Program at the Henderson County Public Library is a fun time to be at the library! We offer activities for children from birth to 12th grade during the summer.
Teens and youth between the ages of 12 through 18 are invited to volunteer at the library throughout the year. Volunteers are responsible for shelving, preparing crafts, and various other assigned tasks. Volunteer's schedules are based upon availability.
