Welcome to the Children's Library!

Located on the second floor of the library, we have books, DVDs, CDs, audiobooks, magazines, programs, friendly librarians, & more!

Can kids get library cards, too?

Bronxville children of any age can receive a library card. The age at which they get a card is at the discretion of their parents. All that is required is a parent’s/guardian’s identification showing proof of address and their signature on the application form. Click here for more information.

Do adults need to stick around?

Parents or caregivers are responsible for their children’s behavior.  Parents or caregivers may not leave a child under the age of 9 unattended at any time and must make arrangements to pick-up older children at closing.

1,000 Books before Kindergarten

Early literacy is what children know about reading or writing before they can actually read and write.

The development of language and literacy begins at birth, with parents and caregivers serving as a child’s first teacher.

Support the lifelong learning process! Enroll your child in our 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program. Participants will earn a free tote bag, book, & more! For more info or to sign up, ask at the children’s reference desk.

Battle of the Books!

Battle of the Books is a book-based trivia tournament for Westchester youth. The 4th Annual Tournament will take place on October 21, 2017. Wish our team luck!!

Reading

In the world of libraries, few things capture the heart as thoroughly as a children's book.  Reading opens doors to other places and times, worlds and creatures.  It helps us understand the here and now, putting words to emotions we feel and to experiences we share.
