About the Children’s Room

Welcome to the Jane Gray Dustan Children’s Room, your source for books and audio-visual materials for children birth through sixth grade!

Our collection includes fiction and nonfiction books and DVDs, music CDs, audiobooks, and parenting materials. Our room also has a selection of books from the main collection (for adults who don’t have time to get upstairs), a black and white copier, internet computers, two educational activity computers, and three iPads pre-loaded with apps.

The Jane Gray Dustan Children’s Room is also a great place to come for a variety of activities. See our calendar for upcoming events. Children’s programming includes storytimes, singalongs, playtimes, book discussions, a variety of guest performers, and a summer reading program.
