The Wellfleet Public Library Children's and Teen Rooms serve children, teens, parents, caregivers, educators and others working with children and children's and young adult literature.
Children may have a library card of their very own as soon as they can sign their name or they turn five years old - whichever comes first. A parent's signature and verification of address are required.
Books, audio books, graphic novels, movies, and magazines may be checked out.
All are welcome to read and play.
“The mole waggled his toes from sheer happiness, spread his chest with a sigh of full contentment, and leaned back blissfully into the soft cushions. ‘What a day I’m having!’ he said. ‘Let’s start at once.’”
– Kenneth Grahame, The Wind in the Willows
