Williamsburg County Children’s Librarian Kimberly Matthews has such fun these days cataloging and displaying the many new titles of children’s books arriving at the library. The new books have refreshed the library collection with more series such as The Boxcar Children, new fiction titles, new easy reader titles, and new non-fiction titles, which are all on the library shelves awaiting checkout by young readers and their families. Books to read to tiny babies, toddlers, and little pre-readers and books children and young adults can enjoy by themselves are all available in abundance.
