Let WTBBL come to you! The Youth Services Librarian is available to visit schools and education centers to present about the WTBBL service or related educational topics to both individual patrons and groups of students, parents, and school staff. Other educational topics include multisensory storytimes, presentations for accessible research resources for students, booktalks and book suggestions in alternative formats for classroom assignments, etc. Contact the Youth Services Librarian for more information.
Visit the Orrico Children’s Room at WTBBL
Open for children of all ages, our Orrico Children’s Room offers a space for children to explore, play, and of course, read! Recently renovated with new furniture and toys, the Orrico Children’s Room is a welcoming space for your child. Featuring a variety of musical instruments, tactile toys, and both Braille and large-print books, this space supports children’s needs for learning and physical development! Stop by during normal WTBBL hours and check out the space.
