The Children's Library has a wide variety of books and other materials suitable for children of all ages. Picture books, easy readers, juvenile fiction and non fiction are readily available. The Library also carries films, both fiction and non-fiction, talking books on CD, magazines, music CDs, and paperbacks. Puppets and puzzles are available for use in the Library.
The entry to the Children's Library is graced with a unique Wizard of Oz glass panel portal. The Children's Library also features a large diorama case with changing exhibits, a working model railroad, and an enclosed doll house. The Ruby Room provides a venue for story hours, crafts, and other special children's activities.
Junior Volunteers Club
The Junior Volunteers meet each Thursday at 3:15p.m. during the school year. The members put on plays for younger kids and help with children's programs. In the summer, the Junior Volunteers run the reading club booth for the younger kids, and help with Harry Potter Day. Junior Volunteers must have finished the 5th grade to join. Applications to join the Junior Volunteers are available at the Children's and Teen reference desks.
Teen Events are for young adults in sixth grade through twelfth grade.
Teen Events are held on Wednesdays at 2:30p.m. (in the summer 2:00p.m.).
These programs consist of activities geared for teenagers. Programs include: Games and Grub (board games, video games, and snacks), movies, trivia, crafts, and much more. Check the library calendar or teen blog for current events.
The Teen Library hosts a monthly book club. The Teen Book Club meets the first Tuesday of each month at 3:30p.m. The club discusses a new book each month and free copies of the next month's book are available at each meeting.
All teens are welcome to join the TAB (Teen Advisory Board). The board meets at 3:30p.m. the last Tuesday of each month during the school year (Sept-May). The TAB advises the Teen Librarian on programs, books and other materials, and any other topics pertaining to the Teen Library.
Teen Summer Reading Club
During the summer months a reading club for teens offers prizes, drawings, and special grand prizes. Teens report to a librarian when they have finished a book, and may enter weekly and grand prize drawings. Grand prizes in previous years have been bicycles, iPods, Galaxy Tablets, Kindle Fire ereaders, and digital cameras. Also, programs are offered every Wednesday in the summer just for Teens.
The Teen Library has a varied collection of material for young adults. Books, films, talking books, Playaways, music, magazines, and graphic novels are all chosen with the tastes of teens in mind. In addition, we also have a small non-fiction section specifically geared for teens, and copies of textbooks used by local Coronado schools.
Teen Tech Team
This program connects tech savvy teens to people who need help setting up or using their smart mobile devices. Our volunteers use their existing knowledge of mobile devices, including but not limited to iPhones, iPads, iPods, Kindles, and Galaxys, to earn community service hours. This is a twice monthly event and each session lasts two hours.
This volunteer opportunity is currently limited to high school students. Please click here to view flyer.
