What types of programs and materials does the Library have for kids?
COVID-19 resources for families
Visit the library’s Coronavirus (COVID-19) Resources for Littles and Their Grown-ups for ideas on how to talk to your kids about the pandemic and where to find the latest updates on the virus.
Storytimes are for everyone!
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.
