Northwest Children's and Teen Library

Besides our great books we have board games, spheros, legos, and art supplies for in library use. Just ask at the Children's desk. We also love doing special events, tours, programs and outreach. Contact us for details.

Also for our monthly updates we have a e-newsletter or feel free to pick up an events flyer in branch. Teens are encouraged to follow us on Instagram @JCLTeens.

Thank you and welcome to Northwest Branch,
