About Our Kids’ Department

The Haverhill Public Library Children’s Room is located on the 2nd floor. Board books, picture books, award winners, chapter books, fiction, non-fiction, graphic novels, Spanish-language books, DVDs, audiobooks, and many more materials are available for circulation. The Children’s Room has materials for all children up to grade six. 

Our staff is eager to see you in-person to help in any way we can! 

Be sure to read the library expectations below before your visit.

We thank you for your patience as we transition to this new phase and we look forward to serving you!

Kids Room Visit Expectations

The second floor entrance (on Summer Street) will remain exit only until further notice.

BOOK RETURNS must be done outside the library. Please use either the automated return window or the black return bin to the right of the entrance.

MASKS ARE REQUIRED for all caregivers who are not vaccinated and must remain on while inside the building. Your mask must cover your nose and mouth at all times. If you do not have a face mask, one will be provided for you. For vaccinated caregivers, masks are encouraged and appreciated while you visit the library. Any child not in a stroller or in a caregiver’s arms should wear a mask, unless the child is under the age of 2, per CDC guidance. We understand it can be challenging to wear a mask, especially for children. Here are some tips from the Mayo Clinic, click here. Our curbside services remain available if your child is not ready to wear a mask. Our staff is happy to put a bag together for you. Please call us at 978-373-1586 x 626.

BATHROOMS and changing tables will be open for the public to use.

TABLES and seating are limited. Puzzles, crayons, etc. have been temporarily removed until further notice.

COMPUTERS will be limited. We can only accommodate THREE computer uses at a time, in addition to our TWO AWE machines.

PROGRAMMING will remain virtual or in-person and outside until the fall.
