Learning For Kids
Salmon Public library offers a variety of resources to children. Check back as our programs evolve! Got an idea? Make a suggestion for something you’d like to see including in our list of programs here.
The new Salmon Public Library boasts an impressive new interactive children’s sections that promotes learning on a variety of different levels. From puzzles to blocks, interactive computers and tablets, with murals to stimulate a healthy imagination. We’ve got some early learning STEM tools to engage your child’s inner engineer. Check out the Tegu Blocks or Magna tiles and try your hand at building the tallest building. We also have a variety of Board Games to boot. When your child isn’t taking advantage of the tools offered in the library, send them home with one of our kid-friendly book review certificates to fill out and hang in the library encouraging other children to read similar material.
