Youth

The West Springfield Public Library is dedicated to serving patrons of all ages. The Children's Services Department focuses its efforts on children and young adults from birth through high-school. We maintain a collection of more than 39,000 children and young adult items, including books in a variety of formats and languages, video, music, puppets and educational thematic kits. We provide references services for children and teens as well as storytimes for a wide variety of age groups, craft and entertainment programs, an annual summer reading program, specialized teen programs and volunteer opportunities. 

Kids, if you need to get homework done, the links on our Homework Help page might make your job easier. 

We have a variety of free programs on a monthy basis at the library.  They are appropriate for a variety of age ranges so please look to see which programs might work for your child.
