Entrance to the Kids & Teens department, through which you can see staff sitting at the help desk.Welcome to Kids & Teens

Our department is here to serve the needs of Kids & Teens from birth through high school.

We provide all kinds of materials for check out and for use in the library as well as a wide variety of programming for those of all ages throughout the month. We are proud to offer programming that is not only fun but that also meets STEAM educational standards (science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics). In addition to this, we also provide outreach services to schools and other community organizations in the area. 

We are a proud group of Librarians and Library Associates who love what we do. We are thrilled to work with our patrons whether it's helping pick out the perfect book, finding the right research for a project, or teaching a new game or skill.

We truly enjoy working with the families of Elmwood Park, and love the sense of community and encouragement we receive in return.
