Welcome to the Stratford Library Children’s Department.


  • Summer Reading starts June 1

    Reading over the summer is so important … and so fun! Sign up for the Library’s Summer Reading Challenge any time beginning June 1.

    Our program is easy, fits your schedule, and is for children ages 0-8 (younger children) or ages 5-12 (readers).

    Watch this space for more info. Reading Harry Potter

    And… don’t let anyone stop you from reading this summer! (Especially reading Harry Potter, hint, hint!)
