For Children

Programs and services especially for children.

Our helpful Children’s desk staff can help find a book on the shelf, show you how to look up an item on the card catalog, answer your library questions and much more!

We have many activities throughout the year for children:

  • Seasonal Preschool Storytimes
  • Open Houses (Kids can do crafts, enter for prizes and play a game)
  • Decorating Contests
  • Guessing Jar Contests
  • Winter Reading Program
  • Summer Reading Program
  • Many events during the Summer

Our Books
We have rows and rows of great books for all different reading levels, from picture books to chapter books you will never run out of things to read!

Puppets
There are lots of puppets here at the library and we even have a special place you can play with them, it’s called the Vincent House Puppet Theatre.

Computers
We have six AWE Stations just for kids! Children can enjoy playing educational games on these special touch screen computers made just for them.

Come visit us and our parakeet Daisy in the Children’s Department at the Fort Dodge Public Library, we can’t wait to see you!
