Youth

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, educational thematic kits, board games, puzzles, outdoor games and Braille books. 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.

Thanks to all of our sponsors who make this summer reading program possible.

All of our programming and prizes are funded through The Friends of the West Springfield Public Library. Our presenters are made available to you through a grant from the West Springfield Arts Council. Some of our programming, like our story walks and Toddler playgroups, is a collaboration with Community and Family Engagement of West Springfield. And our Ice Cream Party is made possible by cooperation with the town officials like the Mayor and Carly Camossi and our friends at Gooseberry Farms. And, as always, thank you to the support of all of our West Springfield friends and family who encourage great readers.
