The children's section of the Bloomingdale Branch of the New York Public Library shares the second floor with an auditorium used for library programs and community meetings.
Bloomingdale often holds puppet shows, crafts, music programs and other special events for children. Call for details.
Every child should have his or her own Library Card. The powerful feeling of recognition as a being in his or her own right goes a long way toward developing a love of libraries and reading. Children from birth to age 11 can have their own cards; applications must be signed and completed by a parent or guardian. Teenagers in 7th grade and up (or 12 and older) must present identification that indicates their grade level or age: a program card, report card, birth certificate, or letter from a teacher on school stationary.
