The West Springfield Public Library is dedicated to serving patrons of all ages. The Children's Services Department focuses its efforts on children from birth through 7th grade. We maintain a collection of more than 31,000 children items, including books in a variety of formats and languages, video, music, puppets and educational thematic kits. We provide references services for children as well as storytimes for a wide variety of age groups, craft and entertainment programs, and annual summer reading program.

Kids, if you need to get homework done, the links on our Homework Help page might make your job easier. 

We have a variety of free programs on a monthy basis at the library.  They are appropriate for a variety of age ranges so please look to see which programs might work for your child.
