Lincoln Parish Library - Ruston LA 71270 Children's Department

The Lincoln Parish Library Children’s Department is staffed by Margie, Shelly, and Pam. The children's area is a beautiful and peaceful environment that encourages children of all ages to read and enter the world of imagination and discovery.
Twinkling lights among the branches of a friendly tree are the centerpiece for the picture books. Here, children ages 6 and under can sit on a bench surrounding the tree or search for that "perfect book" or play games on one of seven computers. Beginning readers can also find many new and interesting books written specifically for their level. Preschool teachers will find a treasure trove of information in our picture nonfiction area. The parenting area is in its own section complete with a rocking chair for parent and baby.
Children ages 7-11 have their own computer area where they can do research, type homework, or play games on one of the  computers. We have an extensive collection of juvenile fiction—children can find all their favorites plus the latest publications. They can check out books for fun or school projects and read their favorite book at tables with chairs at their height. We also have books on audio –especially good for trips! Children can extend their research in the juvenile nonfiction section and in our educational DVDs. Or they may choose a movie on DVD for entertainment.
 
  The story time room is entered through the hobbit-sized door in the tree. Children will enjoy music, stories, puppets, flannel board stories, books, and crafts. Our story times are Tuesday at 10:30 AM and 6:00 PM, Wacky Wiggle Wednesday at 10:30 AM, and Thursday at 10:30 AM and 4:00 PM, as well as a special Homeschooler Hour on Thursdays at 1:00 PM.
