Preschool & Elementary

The Bellingham Library Children's Department is full of books, DVDs, audiobooks, toys, technology, and fun! Peruse our collections of picture books, early readers, chapter books, middle grade fiction, graphic novels, and nonfiction. Play some educational games on our ipad kiosk and AWE computer. Use your imagination playing with our train table, grocery store, and plastic animals. Build with our magnatiles and wooden blocks. Work on puzzles. Explore our activity wall panel. Play with over twenty different kinds of toys for infants through preschoolers. Head over to our family game area to play with about 15 different games for kids of all ages. Get a sticker by completing a scavenger hunt. See yourself in a different way by looking in our fun mirror. Smile a lot.

In additional to traditional items, you can now borrow toys and kid-friendly themed tablets. We also have a lot more non-traditional items to borrow, some of which are appropriate for children.

We also have between 60-90 children's programs per month for kids of all ages. Some of our most popular weekly story times are Ring a Ding, Picnic Stories (April-October), and Alphabits (September-April). We often do several after-school family parties per month and have lots of other after school programs such as Crazy 8s Math and Reading to Daisy, our therapy dog. See all the events that are happening here!

We hope that you consider the Bellingham Library a destination for your family.
