What types of programs and materials does the Library have for kids this summer?

The Rockwall County Library and the Texas State Library annually sponsor the Summer Reading Club, a theme-based program. See the 2021 Summer program’s schedule (Tails & Tales).

Storytimes are for everyone!

Our various storytimes are full of books, games, rhymes, and more! Can’t make it during the day? Try our monthly evening Pajama Storytime (also in Spanish).

Need a furry friend while you practice reading?

Rockwall County Library and Love on a Leash Pet Therapy invite you to read with the dogs (and occasionally cats) in our Pawsitive Reading Program.

Not sure what to read?

The Youth Services department has 100+ books lists to share.  Lists are available by topics, subjects, genres, awards, and by age groups. Stop by the Youth Services desk for suggestions and ideas.

Pop in for a pop-up book!

Bring your library card to the Youth Services desk to enjoy one of our pop-up books while at the Library.  These often elaborate books cannot be taken home but can be read and browsed while visiting us.

Did you know we have six touch-screen “game” computers for children to enjoy?

Each computer has age appropriate multi-curricular content to prepare young learners for school, with over 4000 activities that align with STEM education. The fun, interactive, and engaging content spans all seven curricular areas: math, science & nature, social studies & geography, reading, art & music, writing & computer skills, and reference. Two of the six computers are designated for ages 6 -12; the other four are aimed at ages 2-6. Little patrons 3 years old and under must be supervised by a caregiver at all times while using the computer.

Two additional computers are available for Internet access. However, these are not touch-screen PCs and do not feature games. Patrons must use their library card number to access the Internet and/or print.
