Play at the Library

The library provides engaging opportunities for children to explore and discover the world around them. Play has endless educational and social-emotional benefits for young children – and it’s just plain fun! The Youth Department has an AWE early literacy station, computers, LaunchPads, PlayPacks, and a play area that features

  • LEGO® table and wall
  • Train table
  • Doll house
  • Magnet wall
  • Puppet theater

The display cases in the front of the Youth Department feature childrens’ collections and offer entertainment if you stop to examine the treasures.

To add your collection to our waitlist, stop at the Youth Desk or email gepldisplaycase followed by @gepl.org. You’ll need to share your child’s name and age, as well as a parent’s phone number and email address. Currently, the wait to display is just over a year long. When it’s your turn, you’ll receive an email to confirm your child’s continued interest and receive instructions for drop off and pick up. We can’t wait to see your displays!
