About the Children’s Library

Welcome to the Children’s Library

The Children’s Library aims to be a safe and fun learning destination for the youngest members of the Murrysville community from birth through age 12 along with their parents, caregivers, and educators.

Here’s just some of what we offer:

  • A diverse collection of books, audiobooks, magazines, DVDs, all free to check out with your library card. You will find picture books, easy readers, juvenile readers, as well as non-fiction books, and we’d be happy to help you find your next read!
  • Playaway Launchpad tablet devices, also available for check-out. These devices are pre-loaded with children’s educational games and other children’s learning content, designed with a simple, easy-to-use interface, and 100% secure.
  • Children’s computers, including two AWE Learning Workstations, that support technology literacy and STEM/STREAM aligned content correlated to both Common Core and National State Academic Standards.
  • A family-friendly toddler and preschool play area that is open during all library hours. This area offers an engaging, free, indoor space for children to explore creative play, meet other children, and spend quality recreational time with their caregivers.
  • Free children’s programming for all ages, including storytime for ages 0-5 years old throughout the year and a Summer Reading Program for school-age children.
