Come for the books and programs and stay to play and visit!
Young children have their own area at the Mahomet Public Library, with kid-friendly furniture, books, puzzles, and train and light tables. Comfortable seats for parents and caregivers and a family restroom make this truly a family-friendly space.
Due to COVID-19, we have temporarily removed all of the toys from the children's area.
Firm Foundations is a community-based program for families with children ages 0-5.

Reading Aloud Matters!
Research shows that reading aloud is the single most important thing you can do to help a child prepare for reading and learning in school. 1000 books sounds like a lot of reading! But if you ready only one book per day, you'll read 1000 books in less than 3 years!
We've kept the process very simple:
