The Children's Services Division offers books, DVDs, and other resources for adults and children from ages birth to 13 years. The division maintains a public service desk staffed by professional children's librarians who provide Reference Assistance and Readers' Advisory - recommending books for individual children, parents, teachers, and caregivers.

The Children's Librarians also conduct children's PROGRAMS including Storytimes for all different ages. Summer Reading Programs, Building Blocks, Movies, Puppet Shows, Arts & Crafts, STEM and STEAM programs are also very popular. We also feature performers - Magicians, Storytellers, Musicians, and others.  Please check our LIBRARY CALENDAR for dates and times.

The librarians also offer school and class visits for schools located in Inglewood.  In a school visit, the Children's Librarian will visit a school to talk about the public library, booktalk (describe new books), or other topic arranged by the teacher ahead of time.  In a class visit, teachers may bring their classes to the public library for an orientation for their students, storytime, booktalks, or other topics.
