Welcome to the Stratford Library Children’s Department.


  • You Should Have Been Here!

    Today the Children’s Department had a very enthusiastic discussion about this year’s summer challenge. And we’re so excited to give you a little hint of what’s to come.

    We want to challenge all our summer readers to … read, read, read! And just like last year, we have a librarian challenge to fulfill. So…if the children read 10,000/15,000/20,000 books this summer, 1/2/ or all 3 librarians will perform a special musical performance at the end of summer party!

    What will the song be? Well, you’ll have to stop by the Children’s Department after June 1 to see the 4 song choices and vote for what  song we will sing. Each time you visit the Library, you can cast a vote for the winning song.

    And what’s the best part? (Besides the reading, of course) Children who read 10 books can apply to be part of the show. Check back at the Library after June 1 to see how to apply to dance and sing with us!

    Can’t wait to see you all here this summer :)
