5 to 12 years old

The children's department offers a variety of age-appropriate classes, events, and workshops that are fun and educational for young children and their caregivers.

PAWS to Read
Beginning readers are invited to the library to practice their new skills by reading to a dog and its handler. One-on-one reading sessions are held in a congenial environment to build confidence and to make reading fun. All canine participants are certified Ambassador Dogs. This program is available through a partnership with the Flagler Humane Society. Sessions are offered on a first-come-first-served basis from 4 to 5:30 p.m. every Wednesday. Caregivers must sign a permission form to allow children to participate.

Science Matters
This bimonthly after-school program is geared towards children who are at least 6 years old and like books and science. It provides a fun environment that introduces budding scholars to the scientific method through hands-on experiments. There is no better way for children to learn about the world around them, and the science behind their favorite stories. The program is limited to the first 24 children — sign up begins 30 minutes before the program starts. Science Matters is held from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. on the second Thursday of February, April, June, August, October, and December.
