The Metcalfe County Public Library is dedicated to providing creative opportunities for kids to learn and use their imagination. We are a place to read, relax, play, and make friends. Visit the library to enjoy the many free resources the Children’s Department has to offer (AWE learning computers, blocks, puzzles, manipulatives, dramatic play, sensory exploration, etc.) You will find a diverse collection of educational and recreational materials, as well as programs for all ages. We look forward to hearing your children laughing, talking, playing, exploring, and learning at the library soon.
