Children's Room news
Toys are Back!
As of July 2021, we have started to put out a limited number of toys and furniture out into our children's room. We encourage anyone who uses these toys during their visit to help us keep our space germ-free by wiping them down or placing them into the "Yucky Bucket," so that a staff member can clean them.
We Rearranged a Bit...
While the library was closed last year, our librarians were hard at work improving our spaces and collections for you to enjoy once we reopened. Our Children's Room in particular has undergone some major changes! Check out the map below to see what's new and where you can find old favorites.
All books in our booklists are available within the Allegheny County library system, if not at CPL.
Booklists coming soon!
