Wee Play at the Library

The library is excited to announce the return of play to our children's areas. Starting the week of October 9, 2022, all 25 branch libraries will introduce their Wee Play Learning Stations with new and innovative toys to encourage creativity, learning, and joy at the library.

Wee Play Learning Stations are designed to encourage creative play in children on several levels. Children will have the opportunity to develop their motor skills, self-expression, and imagination with developmentally-appropriate toys. Located in SJPL Children’s Areas, Wee Play provides access to learning-based toys and comfortable environments for parents and caregivers to play and interact with their children and other parents.

Come for a storytime and stay for the play afterwards!
