Children

The Upton Town Library is committed to providing a wide range of services to library users of all ages. Service to children is of vital importance to us.
The Children’s Area offers a variety of materials including board books, easy readers, picture books, juvenile fiction, preteen fiction, audiobooks, graphic novels, nonfiction, Spanish materials, magazines, and DVDs.
Currently, we provide programs including Baby Storytime, Preschool Storytime, LEGO Club, and Kids’ Book Club. Special and seasonal events are held throughout the year on a registration basis.

School outreach is a part of our services. Local schools are supported with storytime visits, school project materials, summer reading titles, as well as collaborative events with school librarians.

The library also offers an Annual Summer Reading Program, which offers a variety of programming each summer.
