Welcome to the Windham Public Library Children’s Room page!
Things we want you to know about us:
Active Play Space
We have a variety of items to engage young minds: a train table, wire and bead maze, latches boards, a chalk board, magnetic letters, a foam alphabet puzzle rug, and more!
Each month, the Children’s Room recycles an old picture book, shreds it, and features it as our Book-In-A-Jar. Can you guess which picture book it is? There will be a small prize in your future if you can figure it out.
Cornerstones of Science
We show off a new science display every month. It includes related books, visuals worth talking about, coloring sheets, and a hands-on activity. We’ve had displays on a variety of topics such as cooking, simple machines, zoology, and inventions just to name a few.
Ask us about our circulating telescope and circulating microscope from the Cornerstones of Science!
