Our Library.


The Children’s Department welcomes all children from infancy through grade six.  Our Family-friendly environment caters to the educational and entertainment needs of every child providing books, DVDs, Blu-rays, CDs, recorded books, computers and toys and puzzles.

Story Time

Early literacy is fundamental to lifelong learning! We have the perfect storytime for your child. Babies & Books (birth-17 months), Toddler Tales (18 months-3 years), Preschool Storytime (2 years – 4 years), Listen & Create (4 years- 8 years), and more!

Kids’ Community Reading Challenge

We love you, North Merrick kids and families! Let’s read together while we’re apart. For every 100 books we read as a community, we’ll add something special to the Children’s Room to enjoy together. We’re starting with decorations– submit a book title and vote for your favorite theme! Submit as many books as you read– each book entitles you to a vote. Let’s see how many books we can read!.

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten
