Come play with us!

The Children’s Department just got in lots of fun things from Green Toys! From vehicles to stacking toys to house and farm play sets, everything is made in the USA from 100% recycled plastic and is safe for babies and big kids alike. We also have a puppet stage, kitchen set, and a Brio train table.  All of these additions to our Children’s Room were made possible by generous donations from the Reid Smith Memorial Fund.
