Programs and Events for Children

At the Derby Public Library, we recognize how important literacy is to children's development. Our Youth Services staff is dedicated to providing programming and other opportunities to help children improve their literacy. We also offer programs that can assist parents as they seek to help their children develop literacy skills and learn to love reading.

The programs below are available at the times listed during fall and spring sessions. In the summer, we offer many other special programs as part of our summer reading program.

Infant and Preschool Programs--Please refer to the programming guide for changes due to Covid-19
