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.

Early Literacy Station
This learning tool is pre-loaded with over 60 programs of educational software. Free for any child– from ages 2-11– to use at any time.
Each backpack has a variety of fun and captivating items included such as books, games, identification charts, binoculars, and maps relating to the subject. They can be checked out for a one week period.
Each August, we raise and release monarch butterflies as part of the Monarch Watch program. There is also an opportunity for 12 families to raise them at home. Contact the Children’s Room (207-892-1908) if you are interested in being a butterfly host family.
We have a variety of passes to local attractions available for patron use. Visit our Passes webpage, or contact the library (207-892-1908) for more information.
