Children’s

The Children’s Department of the Guilford Free Library is the place to read, play, learn and grow! Here you’ll find everything for children from birth through 6th grade, as well as for the adults who come with them. Need to reach the Children’s Department? Call us at 203-453-8282 or email us at childrens@guilfordfreelibrary.org

The library has a free online tutoring and homework help service, called Homework Help Now! which can be accessed from anywhere with your Guilford library card.  Click the link above to go directly to the resource, or read more about it on our homework help page.

Registration for summer programs begins Tuesday, June 6th.  You may sign up online, by phone, or in person.  You may click the links to the right for individual events or download a printable version of our summer calendar here.

We’ve made a monarch butterfly garden at the library and are rearing caterpillars in the children’s room.  Make sure you sign up for event updates here if you want to be notified of their release date once they’ve transformed into butterflies.

The children’s room was dedicated to a wonderful former librarian, Lana Ferguson, who gave so much to make it what it is today.  Head on over to our facebook page to see pictures from this meaningful event.

We learned about different kinds of fiddle music during one of our Lana Ferguson Literary Festival programs.  Take a look!
