Children’s Programming Schedule


Dear Children and Parents,

Here at the Castleton Free Library, we are currently updating and reorganizing the Children’s Area. We are hoping to have most of the work completed by the end of October.

The elevator project will impact services but we do not have a timeline for this yet. Please visit this site to stay updated.

As we search for a new Children’s Librarian know that The children’s section remains open and we welcome visitors! We are still fulfilling requests, so don’t hesitate to contact us.

Stop by through the front door, or enter through the downstairs entrance to visit the children’s section directly! Books and movies continue to be available for checkout. Story hour will also continue throughout the renovation process, every Friday morning at 10:30am lead by Rebekah.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Pictures From the Children‘s Section

Red Clover

The Red Clover List is Vermont’s own children’s choice award for books aimed at kindergarten – third graders. To create the list, a committee of librarians and teachers nominate just ten of the vast number of picture book and “young” non-fiction titles published that year. Voting by children for their favorite book takes place the following April. Click here for the list of nominees with annotations.

We’re circulating our copies in “kits” – each of the ten titles is in a Book Bag with four or five other related books and a small art project. Email, call, or send a Facebook message to quickly borrow a bag via “curbside” (back door) pickup. Let me know when ready for a new set, and I’ll keep track of which ones you haven’t yet borrowed.
