Thursday Evenings - 5-9pm

New at the library!  Join us on Thursday nights for board games and card games.  Challenge your family, friends or a stranger with a game from the library's collection.

The Story Garden provides patrons with a quiet place to read.

    Visit the Children's Department at Shenandoah Public Library. You'll find picture books, magazines, books on tape and parenting resources. When not choosing books, children can spend time playing on one of three game computers. Patrons can use our two public access computers downstairs to look for books on our electronic catalog system. Whether you're a parent or a child, you'll enjoy the Story Garden. It's a comfortable place to enjoy your stay at SPL.

Parent Resources
Parents utilize this special section in the Children's Department  for information on special needs,  discipline and health.  You can also check-out the Hooked on Phonics reading program.

Children frequently use the eight iPads in the Children's Department, which are pre-loaded with apps for them to enjoy.  The iPads are available on a first-come, first-served basis, and children will be encouraged to take turns if others are waiting.

Join the fun at our storytimes when we share books, puppet plays, rhymes and action songs with preschoolers and their families.  Children from the community are invited to join the storytimes in the Story Garden on the following dates:

Story Garden
Imagine a warm spring day.  You're sitting in a sunny garden surrounded by flowers and animals.  Now move the mood inside and you're in the Story garden at SPL. The Story Garden is located just off the main room in the Children's Department.  It is a cheerful quiet place to share a favorite book with a friend.
