The Westfield Washington Public Library’s Children’s Department is a place to find award winning children’s books and much, much more. WWPL is proud to offer a wide range of programming for children of all ages including regular programs such as story times (for babies, toddlers, preschoolers, and school-aged kids), clubs, and Homeschool classes (offered quarterly), as well as one-time seasonal programs like the Polar Express Pajama Party and Super Hero Day. For the current generations that have grown up with technology, we have four early literacy computer stations, an Xbox, and a Wii. The Lego Mindstorm team is another great outlet for the imaginative and technologically inclined. During summer we have a reading program complete with special guests like Amazon John and prizes for all levels of readers. A new schedule of programs is released every season. For a complete schedule of events, visit our calendar.
