Kid's Classes and Events

The Suffolk Public Library Youth and Family Services department loves helping kids and their families! Our knowledgeable staff can help even the most reluctant reader find a book that they'll love. Got a school project? We can help you with that too! We have events for all ages that are hands-on, educational, and fun. Stop by a storytime to sing songs and hear amazing tales or a science program to learn something spectacular. Come in today to hang out in our kid's area and discover something new.
