The Children’s Room at the Milton Public Library serves kids from birth through age 12, and the adults who love them.

We are thrilled to offer families a large selection of physical materials, online research tools geared just for children, and a wide range of fun programming for all ages – all for free!

Kids are eligible to receive a Milton Public Library card when they reach age five. Come visit the Milton Public Library Children’s Room and discover all of the adventures a library card can unlock for you!
